DuPage County Health Department

The DuPage County Health Department, with locations in Wheaton, Lombard, Addison, West Chicago, and Westmont, provide various health services for residents in DuPage County.

In September 2013, the Health Department eliminated the vending machines from our buildings, because health studies continually identify that the sugary drinks sold in vending machines are the number one source of calories in the American diet and contribute to obesity and other diseases.

Also in September, water bottle fillers were installed in all break rooms and kitchenettes for employees. In addition to providing staff access to the upgraded ice/water machines, clients will also have extra access to water by the addition of water spigots and recyclable, disposable cups at the drinking fountains in client areas.
