Progressive & Quality Care in Your Neighborhood

Your health is part of our story.

At Saunders Medical Center, our outstanding team of health providers understands that your health is part of our story.  We are committed to growing with you, your family and your community by offering individualized care using the most up-to-date technology available.  

In 2007, the desire for a local facility designed to serve the Saunders area was accomplished when Saunders Medical Center opened its doors.  We envisioned a facility designed to serve the family and friends we call neighbors. And our vision became a reality. We offer a Family Care Clinic that responds to your everyday health needs in addition to a hospital that provides urgent care, a surgery center, imaging facility and laboratory, a physical therapy facility, and a nursing home, offering skilled care for post-surgery assistance as well as long term care.

Because we offer such a wide range of services within a single facility, we provide a unique experience to you as a patient.  

“Working in a rural facility propels our healthcare team to be diverse in all aspects of medicine, because we see a little of everything. Most of our patients are also from the community, so we get to know them on a personal level. I am consistently told and truly feel patients receive more one-on-one care in a rural facility.”  —Mikayla Smart, RN

We work as one team, collaborating between departments to create a network of care and communication that will hold you securely through your healthcare journey.   

Our conscientious team of skilled individuals truly cares about the health and vitality of our community.  We provide the best technology and healthcare resources in your area, and we look forward to making a positive impact on your health and the quality of life in the town we all call home.

A Community of Care

Saunders Medical Center combines state of the art equipment with a personal approach to healthcare, ensuring you receive the best treatment possible from staff who know your name and are personally invested in your health.

We have professionals in every area of our facility—we are passionate about providing you with the best service possible and will offer caring and effective care using our facility’s cutting edge technology.

While Saunders Medical Center may be located in a rural setting, we promise that the care you receive will exceed your expectations.  You’ll find that we can compete with larger healthcare facilities such as those located in Lincoln or Omaha when it comes to the resources available.  And we’re just down the road from you.

At Saunders Medical Facility, we are your neighbors and understand the care we provide contributes not only to you and your family’s health, but to the stability, vitality, and success of the entire community you call home.  We are thankful to call it our home, too.

Be Well.
