Whiteside County Health Department (WCHD), established in 1966, has developed into a full service comprehensive agency with approximately 150 employees. Not only does the WCHD deliver the traditional public health services like environmental, immunizations, infectious disease, and maternal/child health, but it also provides primary and preventative medical, dental and behavioral health services through a federally funded community health center. WCHD also oversees the county’s mandated Animal Control Department.

The Whiteside County Community Health Clinic (WCCHC) was established in 2006 in response to a lack of access to medical, dental and behavioral health care in our community. It is a federally funded clinic that provides services on a sliding fee and no patient will be denied services based on a person's race, ethnicity, gender identity, national origin, disability, religion, sexual orientation or inability to pay. Besides providing services to the self-pay patient, WCCHC accepts Children's Health Insurance Programs, Medicaid, Medicare and third party insurance payments. 

WCHD has four primary locations: environmental health is located at the Morrison Office, maternal/child health programs and the Community Health Center is located at the main Rock Falls Facility, the animal control is located in the Rock Falls industrial park, and the expanded Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program is located in Dixon.

In June 2021, the WCHD purchased a Mobile Unit that is fully handicap accessible. The Mobile Unit is equipped with two medical exam rooms, laboratory, restrooms, and a waiting area. This new piece of equipment is being used to administer COVID-19 vaccinations at different locations throughout the County.  

Funding for WCHD comes from a variety of sources including grants from both the state and federal governments, fee for services, and Whiteside County taxes.
