Our Story

In 1971, the Bi-County Health Department was started with Anderson County and Linn County. Kansas Department of Health and Environment worked with these two counties because of their low immunization rates. Several years later, Allen, Bourbon, and Woodson Counties joined to form the Southeast Kansas Multi-County Health Department. In 2006, Linn County left the SEKMCHD leaving the four counties - Allen, Anderson, Bourbon, and Woodson.

In the beginning, Health Department Nurses went into all of the schools to give free immunizations to anyone who needed them. All the while working on educating the public about the importance of immunizations. We still provide immunization services, and other services have been added over the years to include WIC, Women's Health, Home Visitors, and Breastfeeding Support.

Feel free to contact us at any time and we will do our very best to help you find what you need. We are here to help!
