Southeast Health Center of Stoddard County Update - Storm Damage

Community announcements | Wednesday, August 4, 2021

(August 4, 2021) – Southeast Health Center of Stoddard County has reopened its Emergency Services, Behavioral Health and Inpatient units following a tornado that caused significant damage to the facility on July 10.

Damages have been repaired in these areas and extensive, additional testing has been completed to ensure patient safety. The hospital’s Imaging Department, Lab and Respiratory Therapy are fully functional for inpatient/Emergency Services use. Outpatient services, including Imaging, Mammography, Lab and Physical Therapy are expected to reopen at full capacity later this week.

We want to express our deepest thanks to the Dexter community, hospital staff and vendor partners for helping us to reinstate full services in less than a month after the tornado. We look forward to continuing to serve Dexter and the surrounding communities with the excellent healthcare they want and deserve.
