Health Administration handles management of overall day-to-day Health Department business operations, controls the agency's budget and financial matters, personnel matters, purchasing, inventory maintenance, agency clerical support, and vital records (birth and death certificates).

Vital Records
North Carolina General Statutes 130-A require that the Health Department administer the Vital Records Program under the direction of the Health Director.

Goal: To assure vital records are filled as required by Chapter 130-A of North Carolina General Statutes and are submitted to the North Carolina State Division of Vital Records within the required time period.

The Health Director appoints Deputy Registrars to process vital records. It is the responsibility of the hospital to file birth certificates and funeral directors to file death certificates with local deputy registrars. Certified copies of birth and death certificates are available at the Franklin County Register of Deeds or from the North Carolina Office of Vital Records. Fees are charged for certified copies of the certificates.
