The Mountain Grove Medical Complex celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon cutting on October 10 at the new clinic facility, located at 500 East 19th Street, just south of Hwy. 60 past the Days Inn. The clinic is an affiliate of Ozarks Medical Center.

The new $2 million, 13,000 square-foot clinic opened to patients on September 30.

“On Oct. 11, 2012, we stood here with shovels in hand for the ground breaking of the OMC Mountain Grove Medical Complex. Now, less than one year later, we are here to celebrate the finished product,” said Jeannie Looper, Interim President and CEO of Ozarks Medical Center.

The clinic, which has been serving Mountain Grove since 1997, offers family medicine, women’s health and lab services as well as behavioral health services including individual, couple and family counseling and psychiatric medication services. In addition, rehabilitation services are available including physical and occupational therapy and speech language pathology.

The new clinic is nearly double the size of the old facility on North Main Street.

“The level of detail that went into planning this new 13,000 square-foot space will mean our patients will be able to receive quality medical care in a relaxing and comfortable environment,” Looper said. “This spacious clinic will also give us the ability to serve more patients and potentially bring additional specialties to this area.”

Looper said OMC has plans to begin offering oncology/hematology and rheumatology services at the clinic later this year with specialists who will travel to Mountain Grove from the main OMC campus in West Plains.

At the ribbon cutting, Looper expressed her gratitude to the Mountain Grove community.

“We appreciate the support of the community who has selected the OMC Mountain Grove Medical Complex to be their provider of care,” she said. “It is because of this support that we have been able to make this $2 million investment in this community.”
