Cloud County Health Center is a medical facility located in Concordia, Kansas. The health center was founded as St. Joseph's Hospital in 1903 by the Nazareth Convent and Academy in Concordia (run by the Sisters of St. Joseph).[1] In 1995, ownership was transferred from the Sisters of St. Joseph to Salina Regional Health Center (Salina, Kansas), and the name was then changed to the Cloud County Health Center.[2]


The hospital offers a range of services including an on-site laboratory licensed in accordance with the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act, emergency services, intensive care, pharmacy, and other health-related services. The health center is a participating Medicare and Medicaid provider.[3]


The health center plans to build a new hospital to replace the aging existing buildings. The plan to construct a new $20-million hospital, and acquire $5 million in new equipment, was announced in November 2007.[4]
