The Marion County Health Department recently held a groundbreaking service for their new building marking a significant milestone in the journey towards better health and well-being for the people of Marion County.

Director Krista Schneider explained that the new building will have temperature-controlled storage for essential safety devices such as car seats, ensuring their longevity and effectiveness in keeping children safe.

The building will also allow much-needed programs such as blood lead and STI testing and family planning services. It will be a more inviting space for children, families and all residents of Marion County to seek services.

“The Marion County Health Department is a vital hub of resources for our community. We collaborate closely with many local and state agencies, including other county departments, schools, hospitals and clinics, long-term care facilities, law enforcement, fire departments, KState Research and Extension and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) to name a few. Together we work to ensure the health and well-being of the people of Marion County,” said Schneider.
