Office of Environmental Health & Engineering (OEHE)

The Indian Health Service/California Area Office (IHS/CAO) offers a wide range of direct services through the Office of Environmental Health and Engineering (OEHE). The OEHE is dedicated to improving the health of California Indians through the provision of quality environmental health and engineering services. Area, District and Field offices are strategically located throughout California to ensure quick and convenient access to Indian homes, communities and health programs. 

The services provided by IHS/CAO OEHE are categorized into three divisions:

Traditionally, each division offers specific health services. In California, the OEHE is structured so that each division and staff work together to ensure comprehensive, high-quality service to Indian people. 

The purpose of this Profile of Services is two-fold: 

  • To increase awareness of the OEHE services available to California Indians and other stakeholders; and,
  • To provide a directory of OEHE Area, District and Field offices and individual contacts for each division so clients have convenient access to services.
