Veterans continue their service to others at Ozarks Medical Center

Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) is a system of care encompassing a 114-bed acute care hospital, 8 primary care and 15 specialty clinics, along with complete rehabilitation and home care services. OMC is a not-for-profit medical referral center with over 1100 employees, serving an 8-county area in south central Missouri and north central Arkansas. OMC would like to recognize a few of our veterans that came forward to be interviewed. We appreciate all that they have done for our country and applaud all veterans for their service.

Part 9 of 9.

Robert Heavrin, Jr., Biomed Technician III

Robert Heavrin, Jr. always considered serving his country as his duty. He also thought it was a place where he could receive the best training in the world. Thinking this way, Heavrin joined the Air Force and served four years providing physical security of aircraft and weapons systems for Strategic Air Command.

A native of Mountain View, Heavrin knew he wanted to work in jobs that help and protect people. He was employed eight years as a sheriff’s deputy for Howell County before coming to OMC. “Although working as a biomed technician is completely different from my military and deputy jobs, by maintaining the medical equipment and solving technical issues, I help the physicians and nurses provide the best care for our patients,” Heavrin said.

Heavrin says his military experience is an invaluable asset. “I believe the training and discipline that I received in the military can be applied to any job.”

Heavrin has two daughters, a grandson, and extended family in the area.
