What Neighbors Do

Cass County Health System is proud to provide excellent healthcare for our friends, family, and neighbors in southwest Iowa. Our mission is to provide a superior experience to our patients, families, and communities. Our vision is to be the best rural hospital in the country for patients to receive care, employees to work, and physicians to practice.

We care for babies, and for grandparents, for big brothers, and little sisters, for busy moms and dads, and everyone in between. On your worst days, and your best, we're here for you. To help and heal, to listen and find solutions, to care. That's what neighbors do.

We provide the exceptional service we’d want to experience ourselves!
