About Bothwell Regional Health Center
Compassionate Health CareProviding high-quality, cost-effective and compassionate health care has always been the priority of the staff at Bothwell Regional Health Center. Bothwell, a 145-bed hospital in Sedalia, has served west-central Missouri since 1930. With a staff of more than 800 employees and 100 physicians, we provide a full range of diagnostic, medical and surgical services. These services include cancer care, emergency services, orthopedics, cardiovascular care, neurodiagnostics, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, outpatient services, diagnostic imaging, medical equipment and community outreach and education. Accredited by The Joint Commission, Bothwell meets the exacting standards of multiple regulatory agencies. Bothwell also operates a network of clinics, outpatient service facilities and rehabilitation therapy. Founded on Community CommitmentBothwell Regional Health Center began as a community effort and continues that tradition today. The health center, which opened in October 1930, is named after major benefactor John Homer Bothwell. Mr. Bothwell promised the citizens of the community he would contribute to the hospital financially, but he would need their help... to raise the remainder of the funds needed. The city-chartered health center has grown much since its beginnings — from seeing 68 patients during its first month of operation to seeing more than 600 per month today. The health center employs more than 900 people in 12 different locations with nearly 100 physicians providing state-of-the-art care in more than 20 specialty areas.Our MissionWorking together to provide exceptional health and wellness servicesOur VisionThe best choice for exceptional care
