About Williamson County and Cities Health District
The Williamson County and Cities Health District has provided public health services to Williamson County since 1943. Our Public Health Centers are located in Cedar Park, Taylor, Georgetown, and Round Rock which also serves as the administration headquarters.
Our agency was known as the Williamson County Health Department until 1989 when it was reorganized as a health district through a cooperative agreement between the governing bodies of the cities of Cedar Park, Georgetown, Round Rock, Taylor, and Williamson County. The cooperative agreement has since been expanded to included the cities of Liberty Hill, Hutto and Leander. The member governments that form WCCHD appoint representatives to serve as directors on a volunteer Board of Health.
The Health District is nationally accredited and recognized for its programs and known across the state as leaders in partnering with community and public service leaders.
