Monroe County has reached a milestone in community health care with the opening the county's new family planning clinic, according to Charlotte Zietlow.

Although most counties in Indiana provide health care services to their citizens, this is the first time Monroe has done so, the former county commissioner said. The Monroe County Health Department had contracted out virtually all health care.

"I am very excited about the fact that we now have real health services provided by the county health department," Zietlow said. "My long-range dream is that this will work so well that Monroe County will begin to think in terms of broader primary health care. Someone has to do it."
