Mid Bergen Regional Health Commission was founded in 1978 as a governmental entity in order to provide an array of Public Health services to communities in Bergen County. The founding member towns of Bogota, Englewood Cliffs, Leonia, New Milford, and River Edge, formed the Commission as a means to save taxpayer dollars through shared services. Since then, we have expanded, and currently serve a total of fifteen jurisdictions.
