Corpus Christi and Nueces County will establish separate organizations for public health services by early 2022 after the city council resolves to end the decades-long partnership on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the city issued a 90-day notice of withdrawal from the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District. The district was founded about 40 years ago with a business model that Mayor Peter Zanoni described as “obsolete” and inefficient.

During that time, services in the health district will not be interrupted, and the city’s withdrawal will not eliminate the district, Zanoni said. Health districts mainly provide preventive medical services to poor patients, COVID-19 testing and vaccination..
