What We Do

Live Well Montgomery County continues to move towards its goal of becoming a model organization to promote healthier life styles for Montgomery County citizens. In 2016 LWMC obtained 501-C3 status. Obtaining this status will allow LWMC greater opportunity to partnership with community organizations and obtain grant funds for community projects and programming. LWMC was a 2016 recipient of the Hy-Vee Garden Grant and continues to promote and facilitate the Red Oak Community Garden. This is the second year that LWMC has been awarded those funds. For the second year in a row, LWMC has sponsored the "Walking School Bus." Students in Villisca, Stanton and Red Oak walk to school for eight weeks promoting physical activity, safety and a healthy lifestyle.

Live Well Montgomery County continually strives for excellence in promoting health and wellness for all!

Wellness Walkway

Montgomery County Memorial Hospital introduced The Wellness Walkway which consists of two different walking paths inside the hospital. This path is open to patients, employees and the public during the day.  Maps are available at the registration desk and simply follow the apples positioned on the walls along the walking path. MCMH Wellness Walkway is a hospital initiative aimed at supporting healthy lifestyles throughout Montgomery County.
