“It’s a privilege to work with you to fulfill our mission of providing patients and their loved ones with the best possible medical experience through a compassionate healthcare team.” -Donald J. Babb, CEO/ED We recently celebrated 35 years of taking care of our community. We could not have accomplished so much over the years without the dedication of our medical staff, nurses, employees, boards, volunteers and community donors. We are ex- tremely grateful for your unwavering support. It’s a privilege to work with you to fulfill our mission of providing patients and their loved ones with the best possible medical experience through a compassionate healthcare team. The past year has been another time of growth, planning and progress for our health system as we work to make southwest Missouri healthier and stronger for all of us. Future additions include new specialists and services, a proposed multi-story addition on the south side of the hospital, we’ve reviewed plans for a new building and location for Citizens Memorial Healthcare Facility, and we look forward to the completion of the new Lake Stockton Healthcare Facility in 2018. The look of our campus and facilities may change, but our commitment to treating our patients like family will always remain the same. As we look forward to the future, we know there will be new challenges and opportunities as we navigate a rapidly evolving healthcare environ- ment. However, I firmly believe there is nothing we can’t accomplish. The best is yet to come. Donald J. Babb CEO/Executive Director 1
