Message from the CEO

For more than 80 years, South Sunflower County Hospital has

proudly served the residents of Sunflower County and the

surrounding communities. In that time, South Sunflower County

Hospital has evolved into a 21st-century medical center that has

grown to become one of the leading hospitals in rural health. Still,

even with millions in upgrades and generations of staff, there is one

thing that has remained constant: our mission to provide financially

sustainable, health care services for our community by employing

dedicated and compassionate staff focused on providing excellent

quality patient care and superior customer service.


We believe it’s essential that our community receives access to the finest healthcare options available because it’s our home and the people we serve are our family. Whether investing in cutting-edge technology, equipment, modern facilities, physicians, specialty providers, and staff to expand and enhance our services, South Sunflower County Hospital is continuously seeking ways to meet the evolving needs of our community.


We’ve also discovered that it’s not enough to wait until patients come to us seeking relief for a medical problem, we need to provide outreach efforts, too. From Health fairs with free screenings to volunteer hours donated by our staff members, we’ve led the way in helping members of our communities prevent and manage a host of conditions, diseases, and illnesses. In the process, we’ve become the health care organization people turn to for assistance, education, and yes, health care.


At South Sunflower County Hospital, we are mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, neighbors and friends, teammates and coaches, students and teachers, community residents and leaders. But most of all, we are caring medical professionals who provide you with convenient high-quality care that exceeds your expectations each and every time you walk through our doors.


We are proud of our accomplishments, growth, community involvement, proud to be associated with the community leaders, employees, physicians, volunteers, and others who contribute to the success of our Hometown Hospital and the betterment of Sunflower County and the surrounding areas.


Thank you for choosing South Sunflower County Hospital. It is our privilege to serve you.
