The focus of the HCC is to develop and implement programs that are responsive to documented health needs of county residents, with specific health status indicators as benchmarks of progress. The HCC implements and support countywide, and in some instance, regional programs that help create access to education, awareness, prevention and treatment services.

HCC is governed by a nine-member executive board of directors and supported by a growing general membership committee. The board is comprised of health care leaders in social services in the county including CEOs from Pathways, LRHC, SURHC, LCHD, University of Missouri Extension and Care Connection for Aging Services.

The executive board also includes the Lexington 4Life Center, City of Higginsville Economic Development, a lawyer who advocates on behalf of migrant farmworkers and a retired RN. Each organization is allowed one voting member. The Health Department serves as an ex-officio member of the board.

HCC's board ensures that HCC is developing and implementing innovative, integrated programs that encourage collaboration, cultural competency and sustainability. 

HCC has established both a Network and several Committees to help us reach these goals. Learn how you can work with us. Join us, today!
