The year 2016 marks the 40th  year of business for the Fayette County Health Department.  On August 10, 1976, the Fayette
County Board voted by resolution to form the Fayette County Health Department.   

Over the years the Fayette County Health Department has been located in three locations in Vandalia and resides now at 416 W.
Edwards Street.  Annually, the health department provides services to over 10,000 residents in Fayette County.  Services
provided include home health, hospice, emergency preparedness, health education, environmental protection, communicable
disease prevention, WIC and Family Case Management, immunizations, genetic clinics, family support workers through the
Healthy Families Illinois program, doulas, and numerous others.    

The mission of the Fayette County Health Department is improving the quality of life through healthy lifestyle promotion, disease
prevention, compassionate caregiving, and environmental protection.  The health department is passionate about its mission and
seeks to prevent death, disability, and disease for all Fayette County residents.

Many activities were planned to celebrate the Fayette County Health Department’s 40th year in business.  Among these activities
included a 5K run on April 16, 2016 and a Family Fun Day on August 6, 2016.  Thank you for making each one a huge success!!

November is National Hospice and Palliative care month.  Over the course of the month we will be posting information
about hospice and the services that FCHD hospice offers.  Did you know that FCHD hospice started as a volunteer
hospice in 1995 and became medicare certified in September 2002?  The hospice philosophy encourages maximizing
the quality of life when the quantity of life cannot be extended.  The FCHD hospice team consists of a medical director,
RN's, CNA's, spiritual counselor, social worker, volunteers and therapy services.  Keep on eye on our Facebook page
throughout the month for more information on each of these services.  If you have any questions about hospice please
contact Jami Lockart, Hospice Coordinator @ (618) 283-7262
