Expert medical care is readily available to the citizens of North County. Two hospitals in particular offer the best in quality healthcare.

Christian Hospital’s two complexes in the area are part of the BJC Health System, and together equal just under 700 beds and more than 600 physicians, while employing a total of a few thousand healthcare professionals. The larger complex, located in Florissant, offers a broad range of medical services. Among its 465 beds, the Northwest Division, as the hospital is referred to, provides services including obstetrics, prenatal care, internal medicine, cardiac care, oncology, plastic surgery and family practice to name a few. A total of 26 ambulances serve the community, including areas in Illinois. They also maintain a 24-hour emergency room.

Just west of the county is DePaul Health Center. Part of the SSM Health Care System, this 607-bed hospital provides similar services as Christian Hospital, offering the most advanced medical technology in the area.

On a smaller scale, yet just as important, is the Murphy Clinic. Area residents whose illnesses are of a less serious nature will find many helpful and useful services at this clinic.
