Citizens for Healthy Community Hospitals

Protect Audrain Hospital and Clinics

We need your help to keep our local hospital strong!

Access to quality health care close to home is a vital component of a strong community. That’s why our local hospital and clinics are so important.

Recently, SSM Health and MU Health Care have entered into exclusive talks regarding the potential sale of St. Mary’s – Audrain hospital to MU Health Care.

Although the sale would mean a change in ownership, it would provide broader access to high quality health care services for the people of Central Missouri specifically those living in Audrain, Callaway, Montgomery and Ralls Counties. It would stabilize our local hospital for years to come and provide a sound financial base for economic growth in the future.
