OCH & Covid-19

Making Sure You Get the Healthcare You Need During COVID-19

Ozarks Community Hospital understands individuals in our local communities have healthcare needs outside of COVID-19, so we have remained open to patients throughout the course of COVID-19. Please take comfort in knowing OCH has taken every precaution to provide a safe and clean environment for our patients. As always, your safety has always been our highest priority.

If you have questions or concerns that are not addressed on this page, feel free to contact your primary care physician or the hospital.

Increased Safety Measures in our Hospital and Clinics

Per the CDC recommendations, Ozarks Community Hospital continues to implement social distancing, limited visitation, universal masking at all times within the hospital, and screening of all patients and visitors to ensure the safety of all.
