OMC Purchases Land in Thayer
Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) announces the purchase of a parcel of land
located in Thayer, Missouri on U.S. Highway 63 just north of the Missouri/Arkansas
state line. The purchase, which took place on November 13, 2015, was made
possible by a charitable donation to Ozarks Medical Center by the property
owners Charles and Ellen Masner.
The property is the future site of a new health care facility which will
combine operations of the OMC Thayer Medical Clinic located at 300 Warmfork
Road, and the OMC Mammoth Spring Medical Clinic located at 260 Main Street
in Mammoth Spring.
“Purchasing the land is the first step in a major investment in health
care infrastructure in the Thayer/Mammoth Spring state line region,”
according to Tom Keller, President and CEO of Ozarks Medical Center. “A
large modern facility will allow OMC to offer additional services to residents,
close to where they live and work. In 2013 OMC built a large clinic in
Mountain Grove, which has now expanded to offer primary care, seven day
walk-in clinic, speech, occupational and physical therapy and behavioral
health services. With the continued support of the Thayer and Mammoth
Spring communities, we hope to offer a similar breadth of services in
a new facility on this land.”
Both the Thayer and Mammoth Spring Clinics will remain open until the new
clinic opens in late 2016 or early 2017.
The community will be invited to a ground breaking ceremony at the site
in the spring of 2016.
