About Us

Progressive & Quality Care in Your Neighborhood

It's Your Story! Yes, Yours!

Saunders Medical Center sought to create a unique and superb facility serving their community. The new facility was built in 2007.  Who did this? You...your neighbors....who serve the county. They created a facility to serve their own families and loved ones. Your community worked to design a clinic to serve your everyday health needs, a hospital to serve your urgent care, surgery center to repair, a therapy facility to rehabilitate you and and a long term care facility that is like no other. 

A Community of Caring

Saunders Medical Center has the latest equipment and caring staff possible. We are not your typical rural hospital doing things small. We do it right and we do it big!

We have professionals in every area of our facility—they are passionate about delivering cutting edge technologies, the best service possible, and most importantly loving and healing care.

They are your neighbors, friends, family....and care for you as if you were family.

Be Well
