NORTH LAKE COUNTY HOSPITAL DISTRICT

"Empowering people to improve their lives to heal"

Patient with Healthcare Nurse

What is the North Lake County Florida Hospital District?

The North Lake County Hospital District is an independent special district that was created by the Florida Legislature to provide a means to pay for indigent care delivered by local hospitals and clinics. The District is governed by an elected, unpaid board of six members who reside in the district and may serve a maximum of two 4-year terms. Each year the board adopts a millage rate that determines the amount of property tax levied on residents, which in turn determines the total budget available for use in funding indigent care in North Lake County.
