LEE COUNTY HEATH DEPARTMENT FUND
For over 30 years, Lee County Health Department (LCHD) has been pursuing its own home to be able to safely house up to 38 employees with adequate space to plan for and provide essential public health services in Southeast Iowa.
In 2022, North Lee Community Foundation and Keokuk Area Community Foundation made a commitment to assist Lee County and the Lee County Supervisors with a fundraising campaign for the proposed new Lee County Health Department and EMS building. The new Health Center and EMS facility will be centrally located in Lee County near the Fort Madison Hospital and on that property given to the County by the Meller family. This piece of land lies adjacent to the Shottenkirk Chevrolet Buick GMC car dealership in Fort Madison.
This new Health Department Center and EMS facility will provide easy access for all the communities and townships of Lee County and will provide excellent health services for all the people of Lee County.
With early and generous support from donors, business and corporations in the County, the Foundation has worked quietly with a campaign to raise up to $1,000,000 to assist with the funding of the construction of a state-of-the-art Meller Health Center.
