St. John's Hospital in Joplin Image by Austin Robertson, KTTS News
Officials with St. John's in Joplin say hospital services will return this coming Sunday. CEO Lynn Britton says a 60-bed mobile hospital will offer surgery, imaging and inpatient care just to name a few things. St. John's Mercy Hospital will also be able to withstand 100 mile per hour winds.
Engineers have determined the existing hospital cannot be renovated because damage is too heavy. Mercy teams are already going over site options for a new building. The medical office building on the hospital campus also took a devastating blow, and structural evaluations are underway.
Mercy primary care physicians' offices have been relocated and new offices are being found for specialists. The Mercy Express Care and Mercy Clinic loactions in Webb City, Carthage and Neosho were not damaged during Sunday's tornado.
