Edina's Health Department provides comprehensive environmental, community and public health services that benefit Edina residents, businesses and visitors.

We strive to accomplish our mission of promoting the general wellbeing and welfare of Edina residents while preventing disease and illness in the community. Our preventive approach helps establish and maintain the high standards essential for healthy and safe communities. All staff members are registered by the State of Minnesota as Environmental Health Specialists and meet stringent requirements for education and training.

Environmental Health
Through a delegation agreement with the Minnesota Department of Health, Edina’s Health Division is responsible for issuing health-related licenses and inspecting food, beverage and lodging establishments; institutions such as schools and day cares; special events; public swimming pools; underground parking ramps; and body art or massage facilities. The Division is also tasked with investigating food complaints and reports of food and waterborne illnesses; responding to disasters such as fires and floods affecting licensed facilities; tracking “Freedom to Breathe” complaints; and reviewing blueprints and completing construction inspections to ensure licensed facilities comply with applicable codes.

In addition, the Division responds to general and public health nuisance complaints and housing code violations and acts as a resource on topics such as private wells, mold, radon, asbestos and secondhand smoke.

Public Health 
Public health services such as health education and promotion, communicable disease prevention programs, public health nursing services, health assessments and public health emergency preparedness are provided in Edina through a contract with Bloomington Public Health.
