Community and Wellness

Lucas County Health Center is committed to the wellness of our community.

As a partner in health, we are available to assist with a variety of community needs, including:

  • Donations and sponsorships
  • Hospital tours
  • Educational speakers and presentations
  • Educational opportunities/training (CPR, First Aid, etc.)
  • …and more!


Lucas County Health Center’s Education Department is a valuable resource for the local community. Healthcare professionals, first responders, firefighters, and community members are encouraged to turn to LCHC for their continuing health education and training needs.

Healthy University

Since health education is not readily available in rural, Southern Iowa, and certainly not without cost, LCHC’s commitment to the health and well-being of its community prompted us to begin delivering health information to the people who need it the most. From this commitment, Healthy University was born. A free, comprehensive health education series of classes which last eight months of the year (concurrent with the school year), covers topics such as nutritional needs, cooking light, exercise, advance directives, stress management, and more. Healthy University is for all members of our community who wish to learn more about health and wellness.
