Adams County launches health department website

Posted

Adams County launched a new health department website Dec. 23 with search features about environmental health, viral records, community services, and health care services.

The new website debuts in response to the county’s separation from Tri-County Health Department.

“The new ACHD website will help visitors, including mobile users in rural areas with limited internet access, to find the information they need. Also, to learn about our work to support public health, safety, and opportunity in Adams County,” said Executive Director Dr. Kelly Weidenbach. 

According to the officials, the Adams County Board of Commission ended its partnership with Tri-County Health Department in October 2021. Its goal is to create a new health department to provide 520,000 residents and businesses in Adams County with health needs. The new health department will officially open its doors on Jan. 3.

The Adams County Health Department’s website also provides Adams County residents with updates on the development of initiatives. According to officials, the website will roll out in phases in the coming weeks and is designed to be user-friendly, delivering the information the health department offers.

“We want everyone, not just health professionals, but also parents, students, businesses, and our partners to get the information they need. We are hoping this website will eventually serve as a ‘dashboard’ for all the services we deliver in Adams,” said Weidenbach.

“The depth and breadth of the content and services ACHD will offer to the diverse Adams County communities are immense. Because of this, we needed a platform that offers a one-stop shop of information for our various populations.”

Vital records

In addition, the Adams County Health Department launched its first vital records office providing birth and death certificates for any Colorado County at the Adams County Service Center, 7190 Colorado Blvd, Suite 170 in Commerce City.

The birth and death certificates are printed on forgery-resistant safety paper with watermarks, raised engraving with background security pattern and certificate identification number, according to officials.

The cost is $20 for the first copy and $13 for additional copies of the same certificate ordered at once. Shipping two-day express is available, and for an additional $25, they offer email and mail orders. Business hours will be from Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Residents can request in-person appointments by emailing vitalrecords@adcogov.org, online through vital check.com, or request by mail at 7190 Colorado Blvd, Suite 170.

Updates from the Adams County Health Department and other information can be found on adamscountyhealthdepartment.org and on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
