Health Services


The Nursing Division continues its commitment to provide preventive health services to the community. These services are made possible through the combined efforts of the health department and state and local agencies and organizations. Most of these services are provided free of charge or for a reduced fee to the residents of Columbiana County.


Immunization Program

Immunizations are provided for infants, children, adolescents, and adults.


Helpful Info


The Children with Medical Handicaps Program (CMH) provides medical assistance to children with special health care needs and their families who meet the medical and financial eligibility criteria. Assistance is provided to children under the age of 23 who have special health care needs and are residents of the State of Ohio.

Although CMH covers a wide range of services, it is important to know BCMH does not cover all the services a child with special health care needs may require, nor are all services available for every diagnosis. Services must be related to the child's BCMH-eligible condition.

Please contact the Columbiana County Health Department with questions about the CMH program, or to apply for services.

TB Testing

There are two types of tests used to detect TB bacteria in the body: the TB skin test and TB blood test. A positive TB skin test or TB blood test only tells that a person has been infected with TB bacteria. It does not tell whether the person has latent TB infection or has progressed to TB disease. Other tests, such as chest x-ray and a sample of sputum are needed to see whether the person has TB disease.

Diagnosis: If a person is found to be infected with TB bacteria, other tests are needed to see if the person has latent TB infection or TB disease.

The Health Department offers TB skin testing. We offer both the one step and two step testing.
