West Allis and Greenfield will combine health departments

The merger of the Greenfield Health Department and the West Allis Health Department is official, with the two cities establishing the Southwest Suburban Health Department. This new organization will serve both cities for a period of five years, with funding coming from both cities and grants from the State of Wisconsin Department of Health and Social Services.

The Greenfield and West Allis Common Councils have approved an intergovernmental agreement to create this new department, which will allow for increased efficiency, better communication, and more robust services for the public within these jurisdictions. The mission of the Southwest Suburban Health Department is to improve the health and wellbeing of Wisconsinites through education and disease prevention, while promoting diversity, connection, and partnership.

Dan Devine, mayor of West Allis, expressed his excitement about the collaborative relationship between the two departments and the creation of the Southwest Suburban Health Department. Similarly, Michael Neitzke, mayor of Greenfield, highlighted the streamlined and focused delivery of community and environmental health services that will be offered to all residents served by the new department.
