Physician Employment

At Ozarks Community Hospital, we want our healthcare providers to focus on what they do best: caring for patients. We pride ourselves on hiring dedicated, compassionate physicians and support staff who work diligently to make the entire medical experience positive for our patients.
Ozarks Community Hospital offers the best of both worlds:

Though we are a multi-campus health system with more than 80 employed providers, our focus on primary care makes it seem more like a large group practice. Ozarks Community Hospital is the antithesis of a specialty-care focused medical tower.


At Ozarks Community Hospital, physicians have the freedom of an independent practice without the hassle of overhead and staff management.
