About Us

San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH) is a local public health agency serving all residents of Archuleta and La Plata counties. As the regional LPHA we monitor, investigate, and communicate the health conditions affecting our communities.

For close to 70 years, SJBPH has improved the health and environment of the Southwest Colorado community. We are governed by a local Board of Health whose seven members are appointed by the County Commissioners of Archuleta and La Plata counties.
