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.
The six-bed Critical Care Unit -- equipped with state-of-the-art cardiac and hemodynamic monitoring -- cares for patients requiring critical care intervention for acute or potentially life-threatening ailments and surgical recoveries in private rooms. We offer families compassion and condition updates during their difficult situations. Our nursing staff strives to provide the highest quality care possible through ongoing education and training.
