graphicCounty residents don't need to rely on large metropolitans to receive excellent medical treatments. Thanks to Labette County Medical Center's presence, our area offers a 109-bed acute care hospital of superior quality. LCMC is equipped with the latest medical technology, and features the only open air Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) unit in the region.

LCMC offers 24-hour emergency services; acute and intensive care; sports medicine; physical, occupational and speech therapy; outpatient surgery; and a sleep disorder clinic, as well as a renal treatment center and cardiac therapy.

The hospital also staffs 14 clinics throughout the county to address general health concerns as well as specialty needs such as neurology and eye care. Each of the clinics maintains schedules for rotating cardiologists, surgeons, urologists, gynecologists and other specialist office visits. Some clinics offer acute beds for patients who need to be admitted to a hospital for a minor illness.

Oswego is very fortunate to have the Oswego Health Center which has six beds for acute admissions, a clinic, lab and x-ray department.

graphicThe Labette Center for Mental Health, with a main facility in Parsons and an outreach facility in Oswego, serves the mental needs of children, adolescents and adults in our county. The center also serves as an outpatient and drug treatment center. Other services include individual, family and marital counseling; sexual abuse counseling; women's issues groups; psychological testing; recovery groups; case management for seriously and persistently mentally ill; psychosocial programs and rehabilitation services.

The Parsons State Hospital and Training Center also stands ready to bring special care to this segment of the population. As one of three residential treatment centers operated by the State of Kansas, it is certified as an intermediate care facility for the mentally disabled. PSH&TC activities include the Sunbelt Special Rodeo and Special Olympics. PSH&TC is also home to the Kansas University Research and Kansas State University Agriculture research facilities.
