What We Do

The Buffalo Trace District Health Department is the local government agency charged with protecting the health of the residents of Mason County and Robertson County. Many of our services are completely free, and the others are low-cost. To see our brochure, click here.

We support both the Mason County Health Department and the Robertson County Health Department. For directions to these buildings, click here.

Our mission is to lead and empower communities to achieve better health.

Our vision is a health community for everyone

Our values are represented by the acronym CARE:

  • C is for confidentiality (we will ensure the confidentiality of our clients);
  • A is for accountability (we will be accountable for high standards of behavior, including honesty and fairness in all aspects of our work);
  • R is for respect (we will treat others with the utmost respect at all times);
  • E is for equality (we will provide equal treatment to all, regardless of social or cultural differences).
