Jackson County Regional Health Center will celebrate the opening of its new facility on March 4 with a virtual open house and tour at 4 p.m.

The Welcome to Wellness virtual open house and tour will include a video tour of the new health center, the new technology incorporated into the design, etc.

The virtual open house is being produced newscast-style to inform and entertain and will be broadcast on JCRHC’s YouTube and Facebook channels. 

Registration and other details will be shared for the online event.

The new center, located at 601 Hospital Drive in Maquoketa, was designed for optimal workflow and for access, value and safety for patients.

The new 71,500-square-foot, $36.8 million, sustainable building includes energy-efficient lighting, heating and cooling, as well as new technologies for enhanced safety and infection control that were added midway through the build for COVID-19 mitigation. 

The health center plans to host an in-person grand opening event this summer after the COVID vaccine has been widely administered and it is appropriate to do so based on public health guidance. During the next several months leading up to the grand opening celebration, JCRHC plans to showcase other features and benefits of the new facility through online activities and a self-guided, interactive tour option for patients who come to the health center for appointments and treatment.
