Public health services are carried out through a collaborative system of federal, state and local agencies, private organizations and communities.
The Oregon Health Authority Office of Community Liaison provides administrative and technical assistance to local health departments and other local partners who deliver services in their communities.
This office serves as liaison between state public health services program staff and local health departments. The office interprets local health department issues to state program staff, schools of nursing and other agencies. The office coordinates and prepares the review of local health departments. Finally, the office conducts the administrative, medical records, and civil rights components of the agency reviews.
