Fulton Medical Center LLC announced today that it is changing the name of Callaway Community Hospital to Fulton Medical Center to reflect its renewed commitment to the hospital and the community.
“We, along with MU Health Care, purchased this hospital knowing a different delivery model was the only way the hospital would survive,” said Dan Tasset, chairman of Nueterra. “We’re providing up to $2 million in new capital to refurbish the existing hospital facility and site. With so many improvements taking place, we decided to rename the hospital to officially signal a new beginning for the community.”
Immediate improvements will include replacing the leaking roof at Fulton Medical Center, renovating the clinical areas and exterior and installing new equipment that will improve existing services.
Throughout renovations, the hospital will remain open and continue to provide acute care and outpatient services through local expertise in a community hospital environment.
“MU Health Care is looking forward to modernizing Fulton Medical Center and providing quality, affordable healthcare – which will advance the health of our community and the state of Missouri,” said Mitch Wasden, chief executive officer and chief operating officer of MU Health Care.
University of Missouri (MU) Health Care and Nueterra formed Fulton Medical Center LLC to purchase Fulton Medical Center in December 2014.
