About Spokane Regional Health District

The Spokane Regional Health District is one of 34 local public health agencies that work to promote and protect the health of Washington citizens. The agency was originally established as the Spokane County Health District in January 1970, when the City of Spokane and Spokane County merged their health departments into one agency. In 1994, the Health District's official name was changed to the Spokane Regional Health District to reflect the increased scope of public health services and geographic coverage. The Spokane Regional Health District now has approximately 250 employees at five different sites and serves a population of more than 400,000 in Spokane County.
