Big Springs Medical Association Receives Over $8-Million Grant to Help Rural Missourians

(Annapolis) The U.S.D.A. is expanding access to health care for more than 100-thousand people living in rural Missouri through the Emergency Rural Health Care Grant Program.

Big Springs Medical Association will use an $8.4 million grant to construct a three-story health care facility in Poplar Bluff for obstetrics, maternal fetal medicine and pediatric specialists.

The centralized hub will better connect Big Springs’ 12 satellite clinics in their 7-county service area.

The investment will help address regional rural health care challenges by assisting some of the most underserved and remote areas in the state.

Big Springs Medical Association has several local clinics.

They are located in Annapolis, Eminence, Piedmont, Pilot Knob and Viburnum.
