Alternative entrance available on 8th Street with extra shuttle service
WEST PLAINS, Mo – As part of the ongoing Ozarks Medical Center (OMC)
Expansion, the Shaw Medical Building at 1111 N Kentucky Ave., West Plains
will close their main and east entrances as of Monday, August 26.
Patients and visitors can enter the Shaw building through the north entrance on 8th street (across from H.O.M.E.). Parking is still available in the main
hospital parking lot, south of the Shaw building. Additional Shuttle service
will be available by calling 417-293-4731 from your cell phone once you
are in the parking lots to request a pickup. Our shuttle drivers will
be patrolling the parking lots to pick up those who do not call. Just
a reminder that Kentucky Avenue in front of the Hospital will continue
to be closed for the remainder of the project.
“We are excited to bring a new era of healthcare to the communities
we serve and hope to minimize any inconvenience to our patients and visitors,”
said Tom Keller, President, and CEO. “Our additional shuttles will
be available and ample parking still available on our main campus.”
About the Ozarks Medical Center Expansion
The expansion is based on providing convenience for patients by placing
more services under one roof. The location of the expansion will connect
the existing Shaw Medical Building and the current main hospital building
housing almost all of OMC’s specialty clinics and ancillary services
to one location, creating a centralized space for patients. The expansion
is designed by Cromwell Architects Engineers, Inc., Little Rock, AR. Killian
Construction Company in Springfield will serve as the construction manager
for the building project.
These additions will allow the facility to better serve more than 150,000
residents in South Central Missouri and Northern Arkansas, who prefer
to stay close to home to utilize quality healthcare services. As confirmed
by a federally required Community Health Needs Assessment, OMC continues
to grow its facilities, services, and the OMC Medical Group to align with
the needs of the residents to improve the overall health of those they serve.
Ozarks Medical Center is a system of care encompassing eight primary care
and 16 specialty clinics, along with complete rehabilitation, behavioral
healthcare, and home care services. While the 114-bed acute care hospital
cares for more than 5,400 admissions, the entire medical system has more
than 364,000 patient visits annually, in South Central Missouri and Northern
Arkansas. For more information about OMC, visit
