The City of Greenfield and the City of West Allis have announced their decision to combine their health departments to form the Southwest Suburban Health Department. This new organization will serve both cities for a period of five years.

The Greenfield Health Department and the West Allis Health Department will now operate under the name Southwest Suburban Health Department.

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.
