About us

Providing high quality, cost-effective health care services to improve the well being of the people we serve

Myrtue Medical Center is not your “typical” rural hospital.  Our integrated health care facility incorporates the Harlan, Avoca, Shelby, Elk Horn, and Earling medical clinics as well as behavioral health, community health, and most recently the Petersen Family Wellness Center and Lewis Family Aquatic Complex.

The Wellness Center is receiving a phenomenal response from the community and surrounding area.  Health is all about improving our well-being and there is no better place than the Wellness Center to do just that.

We have recently completed an expansion and renovation project which will enhance many of the services we currently offer plus allow us to add services we feel are needed in this community and the surrounding area.  The project included relocating surgery, outpatient, and lab as well as expanding radiology and updating the birthing center.

Our new lab was moved to the lower level of the clinic which gave them elevator access, greater security, and ample room to handle the volume of lab work to meet the growing needs of our patients.  Patient access for standard procedures such as blood draws remains on the main floor in private patient blood draw rooms.  Our goal is to provide the best care possible for you, our patients.

Myrtue’s medical staff includes board-certified medical providers and extenders with specialties in family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, general surgery, orthopedic surgery and women’s health issues.

We are proud of our staff, leadership, and medical practitioners who have dedicated their lives to the utmost quality of health care for all of us.  Myrtue Medical Center is
committed to you and our community.
