Food Facility Inspection Reports

Our mission is to protect and improve the health of all residents and visitors. This website offers an opportunity to share information which may assist you in being a well-informed consumer. A person who wishes to serve or sell food for a charge or required donation to the public is required by law to first obtain a license from their local health department. These licenses are issued following a facility review to ensure the design of the facility is in compliance with Ohio’s Food Safety Regulations. Each local health department in the state conducts routine inspections of each food facility in their jurisdiction. The purpose of these inspections is to determine if the facilities are operating in a safe and sanitary manner.

To see inspection results, go to the food program under the inspection and licensing tab on this webpage and click on Food Operation Inspection Results.


January is National Radon Action Month!

Radon is a naturally occurring, invisible, odorless gas that is harmlessly dispersed in outdoor air, but when trapped in buildings, can be harmful at elevated levels. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer and present in elevated levels in about 50% of area homes. The only way to know if you have an elevated level in your home is to test. Act now as winter is the best time to test for radon gas. If your home has unsafe concentrations of radon gas, it can be fixed. Coupons for free test kits may be obtained at the Health District office.

Depression. It maybe more than just holiday blues.

Did you know that 1 in 10 Adults report being chronically depressed? Depression is a mental illness that is both costly and debilitating to sufferers. It can negatively affect the outcomes of various diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis and cardiovascular disease. It affects worker performance with increased absenteeism and decreased productivity.

Those that are most at risk for major depression are women, persons 45-64 of age, blacks and Hispanics, the uninsured, and those with less than a high school education.

Symptoms of depression include feelings of sadness or anxiety that lasts weeks at a time, but also may include feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, restlessness, fatigue and decreased energy, and thoughts of suicide.

The good news is that depression is a treatable medical condition that can be treated with anti- depression drugs and/or psychotherapy. So if you have a loved one that is depressed, offer to go with him or her to see a healthcare provider that can diagnose and treat their condition.

If you want more information on depression or need help with depression, Mercy Memorial Hospital will be offering a free health seminar on depression as part of the Passport to Wellness health seminars. The seminar, “Sadness in the Midst of Joy”, is December 16th at 6:30 pm at Mercy Memorial Hospital.

Preventing Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose levels are above normal.  Our body uses glucose as an energy source from the foods we eat. In order to do that, the pancreas makes a hormone called insulin to help get the glucose into the cells of our bodies. When you have diabetes, your body either can’t use the insulin it produces or can’t make enough insulin. When this happens the sugar builds up in your body.

The buildup of sugar levels in the body can cause serious health conditions such as kidney failure, blindness, heart disease and poor circulation that can lead to lower-extremity amputations.

If you are a senior, obese, have a family history of diabetes or physically inactive, you could be at a higher risk for diabetes. African Americans, American Indians, Hispanics and some Asian Americans are at particular high risk for diabetes.

There are things that you can do lower your risk of diabetes. Research studies have found that moderate weight loss and exercise can prevent or delay diabetes among adults at high-risk. For more information on how to prevent diabetes, Elaine Dyer will be speaking on diabetes prevention at Mercy Memorial Hospital at 6:30 PM on November 18 as part of the Passport to Wellness series of health seminars. Come and learn more on how you can prevent diabetes in your life and your love ones.
