St. Anthony's

Thanks to the state’s strong emphasis on quality healthcare and healthy lifestyle choices, combined with the availability of year-round recreational spaces, Missouri boasts one of the highest life expectancy rates nationwide. State and local governments aim to provide residents with access to the most comprehensive, cost-effective healthcare services and programs.

The area is spotted with a number of physicians representing a long list of medical specialties and subspecialties. Dentists, chiropractors, pediatricians, optometrists and others have all made a home in South County. Local residents are also able to utilize the greater St. Louis area’s wealth of exceptional community hospitals, specialty clinics, urgent care centers and a coordinated network of emergency services.


Notably, the county is well-served by St. Anthony’s Medical Center, the third-largest medical center in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The full-service hospital provides a comprehensive scope of inpatient, outpatient, medical, surgical, diagnostic, emergency and behavioral health services to more than 225,000 patients each year. The medical center is well-staffed by more than 4,000 dedicated employees and more than 800 physicians and supplemental medical professionals in private practice. Among St. Anthony’s leading specialties are cardiology through the renowned Heart and Surgical Pavilion (St. Louis’ first Accredited Chest Pain Center), oncology/cancer care, orthopedics, neurology, women’s health, and emergency care within a Level II Trauma Center—the only one in the South County area. In addition to the main hospital campus, St. Anthony’s operates four urgent care centers in the area.
