We are fortunate to live in an area that has the charm of small town living, but the convenience of nearby first class health care. In our community, Waterloo has several excellent health care providers, as well as a surgical center and a dialysis center. Waterloo also has an excellent EMS service, provided by the Monroe County Ambulance Service.

Additionally, our two closest hospitals are both within 30 minutes driving distance. The Red Bud Regional Hospital is 13 miles to the South of Waterloo, and St. Anthony’s Medical Center, is only 20 miles from Waterloo.
