Brown Countians for Quality Health Care

Brown Countians for Quality Health Care is a group of local people who want to see everyone get the health care they need, regardless of income. We were first gathered by Bill Todd in 2010 to explore ways of delivering health care in our own county while we wait for government to figure it out at higher levels.

We began by learning some facts from Hoosiers for a Commonsense Health Plan (, then began studying the existing resources in Brown County. In the fall of 2012 a group of four graduate students at the IU Kelley School of Business interviewed local providers and examined models for successful healthcare elsewhere. They produced their final report (link here), which won the top prize at the Kelley School in 2012.

Following up on the students’ recommendations, BCQHC compiled the information on local health services for this website. Education about health care and wellness - taking responsibility for staying healthy - is an important goal.

We are exploring many ways to make Brown County a healthy place for everyone who lives or visits here. Input from anyone who shares our vision is most welcome. To learn more or attend a meeting, please contact Bill Todd at or 812-720-0886.

Health Report on Brown County 

During the fall semester of 2012, the IU Kelley School of Business assigned four graduate students to work with Brown Countians for Quality Health Care.  The students interviewed many local health providers and decision-makers to try to determine the barrier to full health coverage in our county and to suggest solutions.
