Our Company

Since 1999, LHI has been simplifying the logistics of complex workforce health programs with cost-effective solutions and seamless distribution processes.

LHI was founded by Donald J. Weber in La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1999. Weber formed the company to address critical military medical readiness concerns, beginning with mass immunization of Service members against anthrax. As the program model produced healthy results, the company and government worked together to explore the facilitation of other health services through on-location event services.

After numerous pilot programs with various federal agencies, the Federal Strategic Health Alliance (FEDS_HEAL) program was introduced, an alliance of the Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Health and Human Services which was managed by Federal Occupational Health. The FEDS_HEAL program, which was awarded to LHI in the fall of 2001, brought members of the military reserve components up to acceptable health and dental readiness levels for deployment. FEDS_HEAL was the platform for much of LHI’s continued growth in government health programs. In 2007, FEDS_HEAL became the Reserve Health Readiness Program (RHRP) after being restructured and renamed by the Department of Defense.
