About Snohomish Health District
The Snohomish Health District was created in 1959 as an independent special purpose district responsible for public health in Snohomish County. We are separate from Snohomish County government, although it provides financial support and is an essential partner in many functions. Our main office is located in Everett, in the Rucker Building, which we own . We also have leased clinic space in Lynnwood. A 15-member Board of Health oversees policy and budget development for the local health district. All five Snohomish County Council members sit on the Board of Health, together with 10 city council members or mayors representing the cities and towns. Public meetings of the Board of Health are held monthly.
