I feel very fortunate to have such an amazing hospital and clinics in our community. Not every "rural" community can receive care so close to home, including emergency, obstetrics, pediatrics, orthopedics and much more. I have personally received incredible care by so many here, including delivering my first child here. I couldn't have asked for better care. OB focuses on creating an environment that is best for mom and baby by allowing immediate skin-to-skin (even after a c-section), a clear c-section drape, on-site lactation consultant, beautiful rooms and incredibly caring staff. They made me feel at ease during this new experience for me and my husband. We weren't just another number. Furthermore, my friends and family have received life-saving care here. Being able to be close to my loved ones while they were receiving care really eliminated unwanted stress. Thank you to all the providers associated with WMMC! You all have impacted my life for the better.

Pulmonary staff is incompetent and unprofessional. They do not answer the phone. I would leave several messages and not get a call back. Needless to say, I did not have a good experience. The doctor is great, however the staff will not call back for schedule changes and then schedule appointments without a patient knowing the time. Find another pulmonary clinic if you can. Would not recommend this clinic unless you have plenty of time to waste constantly calling and leaving messages to no end.
Had surgery on 16TH January 2018 and everyone from admission to discharge were great. I hope your blessed like me to get Marilyn Sutton a CNT on nights or Amy Myles from the cafeteria on days both went above and beyond to help me during my recovery. I would chose this hospital again thanks for the great job.
I have experienced both the ER and the Express Care within the last year with my one year old. Both times that I have gone, I have received great care and very knowledgeable information from the doctor and their nurses. Being a new mom, it is very important to me that I understand my child's diagnosis and feel comfortable taking him home and watching for other symptoms that may arise. I live in Sedalia, and while it is a 25-30 minute drive, it is WELL worth it!
I have had several visits to Western Missouri Medical Center over the years and I have always been very satisfied with my care. The nursing staff are second to none. The facility is clean and well kept. I would highly recommend the hospital.
