Please note: Unlike other years, as of October 7, our Environmental Health Fees will be increasing with the beginning of our fiscal year, rather than the calendar year (Jan 1.) Please accept our apology for any confusion or inconvenience this change may cause. You may download the updated fee schedules here.

The Health Department of Northwest Michigan wishes to extend our most sincere gratitude for 40+ years of compassionate care from the Home Health and Hospice team. THANK YOU!

The Community Connections team is specially trained and very skilled at connecting people to resources to help with needs like transportation, utilities, housing and home supplies or repairs, food assistance, employment, access to care, etc.

The staff remains connected to the client until the need has been confirmed as met in most cases. Referrals can be made for anyone in the community - any age, no income or other eligibility, and you do not have to be a current HDNW client.

Please Note: To comply with the requirements of Public Act 53 of 1974 by the Michigan State Legislature for the Protection of Underground Facilities and to protect our employees' safety, HDNW will be having underground utilities flagged by Miss Dig for all Septic, Well, Existing System and Site Evaluations applications. This will delay all applications for four (4) business days to allow for utility marking.
