<strong>LOGAN—</strong> The Bear River Health Department is always looking for ways to provide services in the best, most efficient, and most affordable way possible according to the department’s Communications Director Jill Parker.
In the Departments annual report to Logan’s Municipal Council Tuesday night, Parker said the Health Department, which covers Cache, Rich and Box Elder counties, was able to continue that in 2012.
“The health department had a facility in Tremonton, but pulled out a few years ago because we had outgrown the building. In December of last year, we were able to open a new facility in Tremonton,” Parker said. “At that facility, citizens can access mental health services, substance abuse treatment services, public health services – like vital record, immunizations, WIC – and we’re working right now to get a community health clinic there as well. So, it’s kind of a one stop shop.”
Parker said the Health Department was also able to offer mental health services in Garden City in Rich County. Parker says the Cache County Council has asked the Bear River Health Department to implement the emission control testing program recently adopted by the Council.
