Lawrence County to Build New Health Center

Lawrence County is getting a new health center.

The building will be located on Missouri Drive in Mount Vernon.

The new 5.3 million dollar health department building will be paid for with pandemic recovery money.

The County Commission decided that expanding the health center should be a priority after the pandemic.

The health center has been in a converted grocery store since 1995.
