Speakers at the ribbon cutting ceremony, scheduled to begin at 2 p.m., will include Matt Wenzel, Hedrick Medical Center CEO, Melinda L. Estes, M.D., president and CEO of Saint Luke’s Health System, and Chuck Haney, Mayor of Chillicothe. City Administrator Ike Holland will also be in attendance, along with other public officials.

Immediately following the ribbon cutting, everyone will be free to take self-guided tours of the facility, which will continue until 7 p.m. Guests will be able to tour the more than 100,000 square-feet hospital, which houses the latest in medical technology, treatments, and amenities.

“The opening of our new Hedrick Medical Center is the culmination of multiple years of hard work by a dedicated team of professionals,” Wenzel said. “We are eager and excited to begin sharing this accomplishment with the community by giving them a sneak peak before the grand opening. This is a very unique and rare opportunity to view a new state-of-the-art hospital behind the scenes to see areas of the hospital not normally open to the public. The responses we’ve had from those few who have already seen the facility have been outstanding.”

Located in Chillicothe, Mo., a community of 9,500, Hedrick Medical Center is the only Joint Commission-accredited hospital in north central Missouri. Hedrick provides care to residents of Livingston County and an eight-county region of north central Missouri. Services of the new hospital will include a 24-hour Emergency Department, primary care clinics, specialty clinics, inpatient acute and rehabilitation care, a full-service Maternity Unit, inpatient and outpatient surgery, Intensive Care Unit with eICU capabilities, diagnostic imaging, outpatient rehabilitation services, and a Women’s Center featuring the region’s only 3-D mammography.
