Community Health Center Votes to Establish Dayton Clinic

The Community Health Center of Fort Dodge has voted to establish a medical clinic in the city of Dayton. Members of the organization’s board gave unanimous support towards the new clinic, which will replace the Van Diest Medical Center Clinic. Van Diest officials voted to close the clinic, citing a projected $70,000 annual loss. Pending approval from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration, Community Health Center’s Dayton clinic could open by June 23.
