The Jefferson County Health Center Auxiliary supports the needs of the hospital, the comfort of the patients and their families, and to give scholarships to individuals pursuing a health related career.
We bring the specialists to you! No need to travel to Burlington, Ottuwma or Iowa City to see a Specialist. Many of them see local patients in our Specialty Clinic located on the Jefferson County Health Center campus.
Many people hesitate before they come to the Emergency Department but there are certain symptoms I want to make sure you never ignore or delay getting treatment for. When you have symptoms of a stroke, you must react quickly. We would rather have you come in for a false alarm, then to have you take the chance of suffering some form of permanent disability due to a stroke.
If you have any of the following symptoms, note the time of day, and then go immediately to the nearest hospital Emergency Department.
