BJC Healthcare Clinical Supervisor - Geriatric Psych in Sullivan, Missouri

Your Career. Made Better.

Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital (MBSH) is an acute-care facility located off Highway 44 in Sullivan, Missouri, serving the residents of Crawford, Franklin and Washington counties. MBSH just recently completed an 8-year journey from a very small facility to a very, very modern facility that can treat and take care of patients with special problems. The Wound Care Center, which is the newest specialized center of its kind within a 60-mile radius, is a perfect example of that. MBSH also operates a visiting specialty clinic program in its Medical Office Building. Visiting physicians with expertise in a variety of medical specialties come to the Hospital from Missouri Baptist Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri. This gives patients the opportunity to see and receive treatment from highly skilled specialists without leaving the Sullivan area. The Hospital is an integral part of the rural communities we serve-our patients are also our friends and neighbors-so we have a special sense of commitment to provide excellent care to every patient.

The New Hope Senior Behavioral Health Center at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital provides treatment for people 55 and older who need structured psychiatric care in a warm, supportive environment. The goal of the New Hope Senior Behavioral Health Center is to return every patient to the optimal level of function possible outside the Hospital setting.
