Welcome to the Cuyahoga County Board of Health Inspection Website. The mission of the Cuyahoga County Board of Health (CCBH) is to prevent disease and injury, promote positive health outcomes, and provide critical services to improve the health status of the community. The Environmental Public Health Service Area collaborates closely with local, county, regional, state, and federal officials to address the needs and concerns of our residents and community partners. We are the branch of public health that is concerned with all aspects of our natural and man-made environment that may affect our health and the ways in which we impact the environment.
Environmental Public Health sanitarians and support staff perform a wide variety of important public health functions, including the inspection of food facilities, water recreation facilities, on-site sewage systems, schools, and solid waste facilities. On this site, you can view inspection reports for facilities located throughout our General Health District in several of these programs.
CCBH is working in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Health to make inspection reports of regulated facilities more accessible to the public. Over time, additional regulated facility types will be added to this site. Currently, public access to inspection reports is limited to inspection reports of locally regulated food and recreational water facilities.
Please keep in mind that any inspection report is a “snapshot” of observations recorded during the time the inspector was at the facility. On any given day, an establishment may have fewer or more violations than noted on the day of the report. Therefore, an inspection report may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions within an establishment. It is also important to note that if a violation is cited at a particular operation, that violation applies to that location only and is not representative of all other operations owned or managed by the same parent company. In our experience, it is unrealistic to expect that complex facilities will always be free of violations. One measure of an operator’s responsiveness is the successful resolution or correction of violations on subsequent inspection reports.
Due to the recent nature of the availability of this on-line inspection report site, only food inspections conducted since March 1, 2014 and swimming pool and spa inspections conducted since June 1, 2014 are available on this website. Information on other inspections can be obtained by contacting CCBH at (216)201-2000.
