The Pettis County Community Health Center is a county department financed by local taxes and contracts with the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services. It receives state and federal reimbursement moneys for some programs.
A fee ordinance permits the Health Center to provide services on a sliding scale fee based on household income.
Services provided by the Pettis County Health Center are by appointment. Same day appointments are often available. This arrangement permits us to provide the most service in the most efficient way.
It is the policy of the Pettis County Health Center to provide equal services to all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, political belief, veteran status, and physical or mental disability.
Mission Statement: The mission of the Pettis County Health Center is to work with community partners to promote a healthy community through assessment of the health needs of the county, identification of environmental health risks and the provision of quality preventative health services through education, screening, and early intervention.
The Board of Trustees of the Pettis County Health Center is made up of 5 elected residents of the county. The Trustees represent various areas of the county and come from a variety of backgrounds. All Trustees are elected by all county voters – there are not districts.
