Just Who is JCHC?

JCHC employs over 200 health care professionals. Since opening the doors in 1952, , the facility has grown and modernized. Amie Holt Care Center was added onto the facility in 1964. The Home Health department began serving Johnson County in 1983, and the Family Medical Center outpatient clinic was added in 1986.

Realizing that JCMH was not only a hospital, but really a multi-faceted health care facility, the board of directors changed the name in the 1990's to Johnson County Healthcare Center. Amazingly enough, we found that we had grown enough by 2006 to necessitate nearly doubling the size of the outpatient clinic.

Along with the clinic remodel, a beautiful new dining room and addition was also added. In 2011, a new lobby, ER and all new administrative offices were added.   In 2016, a new Nursing Home was built, and the campus officially became two separate buildings.
