Who We Are
The Upper Missouri District Health Unit (UMDHU) was founded and began offering sanitation and nursing services in Divide, McKenzie and Williams Counties in 1947. It was the third public health unit formed in the state. Mountrail County joined the health unit in 1949. The central office is located in Williston; satellite offices are maintained in Crosby, Stanley and Watford City (all are county seats).
