PLATTE COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT
Facility dedicated to the health and well-being of all Platte County residents.
Addition and renovation of an existing daycare into offices and clinics.
The Platte County Health Department is a local public health department created to protect the health of all people in Platte County. This is done through various programs and services.
The health department is governed by a five-member elected board of trustees that meets monthly. The health department is funded through a tax levy, which provides more than 60 percent of the department’s revenue. Other funding sources include contractual agreements and grants.
The Platte County Health Department needed to expand to serve the county’s needs. Currently located in both Platte County and Parkville, there’s desire to combine both locations into one, larger, fully functional space. The county purchased an existing daycare to demo and transform into offices and clinics. Renovated interior spaces will receive new finishes and a fresh coat of paint, while two small additions include a metal garage drive through for immunizations.
