A New, Better Hospital for Jackson County
On March 27, the Jackson County Maquoketa Regional Health Center Board of Trustees voted 4-3 and approved the construction of a new medical facility on 25-acres green land on the south side of the city. Construction of the new facility will cost approximately $37.2 million and will take about 20 months to complete.
Construction at S. 17th St. and Timber Drive could begin as soon as early 2019.
The new Jackson County Regional Health Center maintains the hospital's commitment to serving the people of Jackson County while enhancing the level of care with the latest in technology.
“Jackson County Regional Health Center is your regional health center. We’ve been here for 66 years and plan to be here for many more to serve the needs of the region. To do that, we need to think about how best to physically serve those needs with a modern facility,’’ said Curt Coleman, administrator of Jackson County Regional Health Center.
