Achievements and Expansion

CMH continues to expand services to meet many health care needs throughout the eight-county service area in southwest Missouri. Here are highlights of recent achievements.

Coming Soon: Hospital Expansion and Renovation

A $100 million hospital expansion and renovation project will create an all-new patient experience. It will include private rooms, the latest medical technology and the same compassionate, quality care you expect from CMH. Learn more about the expansion.


"Make-ready" projects were completed in the spring. Expansion construction began on May 6.


More than 600 people attended the project's groundbreaking ceremony on Sept. 28. An additional 400 people watched the ceremony live online. The groundbreaking also marked 41 years since the hospital opened in 1982.
