The Lucas County Healthy Communities Foundation was established in 1998 by the Lucas County members of the Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio. The Foundation ‘s mission is to improve health status by providing a forum for hospitals to work collaboratively to design, promote and support projects to improve the health and well-being of Lucas County residents.
