SoutheastHEALTH: The Difference is How You’re Treated

Our mission began some 80 years ago when a group of community leaders opened a small hospital overlooking what is now Cape Girardeau’s Capaha Park.

Today, SoutheastHEALTH is a recognized leader in healthcare for our region, employing more than 2,300 healthcare professionals and handling over 11,000 admissions annually. We are a comprehensive medical center, offering compassionate and complete care to every patient.

At Southeast, There is a Difference. The Difference is How You’re Treated. You’ll find it in a friendly smile, a pleasant voice, a helping hand and a warm heart. From our experienced healthcare professionals to our dedicated volunteers, SoutheastHEALTH is there when you need us the most.

It’s also evident in our efforts to continually improve patient care. A case in point is our Ventilator Associated Pneumonia Improvement Project which began last fall. The project marked a milestone with no ventilator associated pneumonia diagnoses in ICU or CTU for first quarter of 2012. This good news can be credited to a multidisciplinary team whose members worked together, using evidence-based practices to achieve this result which benefits our patients.

Our commitment is found in our specialized care centers: Heart, Cancer, Brain & Spine, Women’s & Children’s Health, Orthopedics & Joint Replacement, and Emergency Services.
