CEO Welcome Letter

Welcome to Lucas County Health Center!

Our facility has proudly served Lucas County and the surrounding communities for more than 50 years. In that time, we’ve built new facilities, expanded our service, upgraded technology, and increased our medical staff – all in an effort to provide you with a better patient experience.

Today we are a 25-bed critical access, county hospital with a full spectrum of services ranging from medical clinic services to radiology and surgery.

In 2019 LCHC Medical Clinic was recognized as an “exemplar practice” by the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS).  Lucas County Health Center was the only clinic in Iowa and one of over fifty in the nation to be recognized with this prestigious award.  Additionally, our facility was named 1 of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals in the nation by the National Rural Health Association. We are proud of these accomplishments and look forward to continuing our mission to provide our community with quality, family-centered healthcare.

Our devoted professionals work as a team to create an environment that promotes the health and well-being of the community we serve.

It has been said, bricks and mortar do not care for the sick, hands and hearts do. It is my honor to be part of an organization where hearts and hands still guide the mission. On behalf of the entire team, I thank you for your interest in Lucas County Health Center. I invite you to contact me if you have any questions about our hospital and/or the services we provide.
