Ottumwa Regional Health Center
For more than 125 years, Ottumwa Regional Health Center in eastern Iowa has served the local community of Ottumwa and all of the residents of Southeast Iowa. The history of this wonderful organization dates back to its early beginnings as a Temperance Parish church. In those days the area was an important route for grain and livestock deliveries to the railroads. The center continues to provide affordable and quality health care to its residents today. This is fortunate because the center has also maintained its reputation as one of the best places to go for personal care in Iowa.
The medical staff at the center is made up of licensed professionals who have been through training. These individuals are focused on providing excellent care to their patients. A primary objective of the staff is to provide a comfortable and friendly environment for the patient while providing necessary healthcare. Because of the focus on family-centered care in this facility, patients can interact with other patients in the waiting room and share personal stories. Family members are encouraged to visit the center on occasion and speak with the staff about their needs.
The patient’s family is always welcome at the center. They are treated warmly and given attention to detail by the doctors and other staff members.

The patients are not apprehensive about visiting the doctors during their appointments and they feel at ease when the doctors and staff members are dealing with them. The doctors and staff members take special pride in treating the patients with respect. This is evident in the way the physicians address their patients while they meet with them. The patients are allowed to ask any questions they may have during their appointment. This helps to build strong relationships with all of the doctors and staff members at the center.

Ottumwa Health Center staff
The entire staff at the Ottumwa Health Center is highly trained and dedicated to providing high-quality health care to all of the residents.

Through the years, many different types of treatment have been administered at the Ottumwa Health Center. A patient who needs invasive surgery will be carefully evaluated before undergoing any type of procedure. If the surgeon determines that the patient is a good candidate for the procedure, then an initial consultation will take place. During this consultation, the surgeon will discuss all aspects of the procedure as well as his plans for post-treatment care.
Many patients receive further treatment once they leave the OTTU center. If the patient requires additional treatment following the surgery, then this will be provided when the patient is discharged from the hospital. The patient will be taken to an outpatient facility where he or she can recover completely. Some people have opted to stay in the OTTU facility to receive continued post-surgical care. These people may choose to stay at the center for a few more months to recover completely before they undergo another surgical procedure.
Because each patient has different needs, the health center strives to treat each one as best as possible. They do not focus on one gender or the other to provide equal treatment to both sexes. The doctors and nurses are only concerned with the well-being of the person and the immediate treatment of the emergency or illness that was causing the emergency
