Administrative Services

Our administrative division manages the business activities of the Health Department. It oversees all financial, human resources and procurement activities, and works with state and city offices to handle facility management and IT services. This division also oversees all clinic patient registration, eligibility, record management and fee collections. It also assists in vital record requests, like birth and death certificates.

Accounts Payable

Call 703.746.4909 for information about unpaid invoices for goods and services. If you need to mail an invoice, send it here:

  • Alexandria Health Department
    Attention: Accounts Payable
    4480 King Street
    Alexandria, Virginia 22302

Birth / Death Certificates

Certified copies of death certificates are available to eligible family members at our Main Office. You can get birth certificates from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) or Office Vital Records or other sites. Call 703.746.4991 or visit for more information.

Eligibility of Services

Some of our services have eligibility rules that determine who can get Health Department services. Usually, these rules relate to what county the patient lives in, how big or how much money the patient's family makes. Call 703.746.4915 and our eligibility staff will work with you to determine what you qualify for.

No one will be denied access to care because of their inability to pay. 

Employment Opportunities

The Health Department hires positions funded by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), City of Alexandria and a few grants. Majority of our positions are VDH positions.
