The Niagara County Board of Health was established in 1965 and is the policy making board for the Niagara County Department of Health.  The Board of Health also appoints the Public Health Director or Commissioner of Health with the approval of the New York State Department of Health.

The Board of Health consists of ten (10) members as prescribed by New York State Public Health Law.  Term of office is six years.  Three members are physicians from Niagara County; three members are mayoral recommendation appointments - one from Niagara Falls, one from North Tonawanda and one from Lockport; three members are at-large appointments; and one in a member of the Niagara County Legislature.  These appointments are all made by the Chairman of the Niagara County Legislature.

The Board of Health meets eleven times a year on the fourth Thursday of the month, except for November and December (the last meeting of the year is held on the first Thursday in December due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays).
