Welcome to the Black River Medical Center website. Our goal is to provide quality healthcare to every resident of the region and for you to think first of our physicians and facility when there is a need. I invite you to use this resource for your healthcare informational needs.

When the concept of Black River Medical Center was conceived, the mission was to provide the community with healthcare choices. Throughout our short tenure in Poplar Bluff, the  commitment has remained steadfast to improve community health and quality of life, and to care for our patients in extraordinary ways. This commitment means that we strive to provide highly trained competent staff and patient-centered partnerships with excellent physicians.

Our website will provide you with the information needed to find a local physician, learn more about our inpatient and outpatient services, as well as identify the many support groups and community activities that help you lead healthier, happier lives.

I am confident in the quality of services we provide at Black River Medical Center and am especially proud of the employees and physicians who care for our patients.

If you have a need for Imaging procedures, Surgical Services, Emergency Services or a hospital stay, please stop by and see for yourself the wonderful staff and services we provide. I welcome you to Black River Medical Center as a visitor, patient, interested physician or applicant.


Please contact me personally, should you have any questions or comments. I am proud of our hospital and the role we play in our community. I would love to hear from you!
