    More Information:

    Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital (MBSH) is an acute-care facility located off Highway 44  in Sullivan, Missouri, serving the residents of Crawford, Franklin and Washington counties.  MBSH just recently completed an 8-year journey from a very small facility to a very, very modern facility that can treat and take care of patients with special problems. The Wound Care Center, which is the newest specialized center of its kind within a 60-mile radius, is a perfect example of that. MBSH also operates a visiting specialty clinic program in its Medical Office Building. Visiting physicians with expertise in a variety of medical specialties come to the Hospital from Missouri Baptist Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri. This gives patients the opportunity to see and receive treatment from highly skilled specialists without leaving the Sullivan area.   The Hospital is an integral part of the rural communities we serve-our patients are also our friends and neighbors-so we have a special sense of commitment to provide excellent care to every patient.

    Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital's Emergency Department experienced continued growth in 2010 seeing more than 20,000 patients. Our 24/7 staff includes experienced emergency physicians with a nurse practitioner or physician assistant caring for our non-urgent cases. All staff have specialized training in trauma care, advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support, and 12-lead EKG interpretation for stroke and cardiac patients. We have several nurses with more than 30 years experience in emergency care and other nurses who are paramedics. Our latest technology includes a 64 slice CT machine, used by many of the large trauma centers in St. Louis. We have our own ambulance service that features a paramedic on each unit. When needed, we also have access to helicopter transportation for patients needing a higher level of care.
