Your Care is Our Priority!
Sedgwick County Health Center is the umbrella organization for five distinct business lines: Sedgwick County Memorial Hospital (constructed in 1950), Sedgwick County Memorial Nursing Home (constructed in 1962), Valley Medical Clinic (purchased and operated since 1997), Jacob J. and Anne B. Walter Memorial Living Center (constructed in 1998), and Valley Medical Clinic in Big Springs, NE. Sedgwick County Health Center is a county owned organization. Sedgwick County Health Center’s service area is defined as Sedgwick County and a portion of Deuel County in the Nebraska panhandle.
Sedgwick County Health Center is the only health care provider in Sedgwick County. The closest health care facility is 30 miles southwest of Julesburg. Sedgwick County Health Center completed a three year renovation/remodel of the hospital/clinic in 2006. This project was specifically renovation of 11,686 square feet and the construction of 8,700 square feet. It increased the old ER space from 244 square feet to over 2800 square feet of ER and Trauma rooms with expanded services; created a new obstetric ward with two suites; established a large physical therapy department and fitness center; and united the hospital and clinic into one physical entity.
Since 1950 Sedgwick County Health Center has been providing health care services to this area. This organization is the largest employer in the community. The overall operating philosophy of our organization is to provide high quality health care to the residents of this area in Julesburg so that patients do not have to travel far away from home to receive medical care.
