About US

Established in 1968 to serve Northeast Missouri residents, we have grown from a small medical clinic to a comprehensive, not-for-profit health center. Today, we serve our rapidly expanding 11 county area, providing a quality experience for all who choose NMHC as their medical home.  
Along with our state-of-the-art facilities, increased medical staff, and updated technology, our vision continues to expand as we identify partnerships in the community to improve the accessibility of services, ensuring that every need is met for our patients.

How We're Different

Northeast Missouri Health Council takes pride in providing quality patient care. We conduct an ethical practice that adheres to all state and federal rules and regulations. NMHC is committed to achieving safe, high-quality healthcare for all our patients. Our goal is to ensure that all patients receive the right care, at the right time, in the right setting, every time. We strive to reach our goal by ensuring care is:


  • Effective – provide services based on scientific knowledge and best practices

  • Patient-centered – provide care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs and values

  • Timely – reduce wait time and sometimes harmful delays for both those who receive and deliver care

  • Equitable – provide care that does not vary in quality because of personal characteristics
