The Piqua City Health Department is responsible for administering the general health laws, rules and regulations of the State of Ohio, and enforcing the health laws adopted by the Piqua Board of Health (City Commission).
Health Department activities include inspections and consultations in the following programs: Food service operations (restaurants), food establishments, temporary food service operations at local festivals, vending machines, public swimming pools, schools, tattoo and piercing studios, rabies control, plumbing, vital statistics (birth & death records), public health nursing, smoking, and vector control.
In addition, the Health Department also investigates general nuisance complaints such as high grass and trash on properties.
The Community Health Assessment (CHA) describes the health of Miami County residents by presenting a broad analysis of factors which impact health status, as well as the context for the health status. The CHA also captures the social determinants of health that contribute to health status, including housing costs, access to healthy food, availability of recreational space, and physical activity. Community members and partners were engaged to collect and analyze health-related data and information from a variety of sources. The goal is to inform community decision-making, prioritize health problems, improve collaborative efforts, and assist in the development and implementation of planning, policy, and actions to improve the health status of all Miami County residents.
