The Glades County promise: living well, quality care

The LEED Silver certified Glades County Health Department opened in 2011 and offers Clinical and Nutrition Services, Wellness Programs, Community Health Planning and Statistics and Environmental Health, all under the auspices of the State of Florida. Florida Community Health Centers Inc. provides pediatric and adult primary and preventive care; preventive and restorative dental services; and OB/GYN services onsite. Additionally, it is exploring offering business services including drug screenings, worker’s comp and other services by contract to companies locating in the adjacent Glades County Business Park and America’s Gateway Logistics Center.

A new Emergency Operations Center—housing fire, EMS, and emergency management services—opened in the Glades County Compound in 2015.

All of these services have been developed to promote health and wellness for Glades County residents and new businesses locating or expanding in Glades County, lowering insurance rates and improving the quality of life in Glades County.
