La Junta Health Service District

The La Junta Health Service District (LJHSD) is a Special District composed of five elected board members who are in the process of building a state-of-the-art  non traditional nursing home to be called Bluestem Village.

The LJHSD has an elected and volunteer self-operating board of directors completely separate from the City of La Junta and the Arkansas Valley Regional Medical Center.  The financing of the LJHSD will be a 1.0% increase in La Junta sales tax.  La Junta voters approved the 1.0% sales tax increase in the November/2017 election by an overwhelming vote of 79.79% to 20.21%.  Once all debt is authorized, city sales tax will be reduced by 0.50% to 7.40% from 7.90% for ongoing facility maintenance, operations, upgrades, etc.
