Mile Bluff has been serving the community for well over a century. In 1893, Dr. J.S. Hess, Sr. started what is now the Mile Bluff organization. He saw the bigger picture - helping a community grow by meeting the healthcare needs of area residents. Hess' dream grew into a multi-facility organization that now serves a population of more than 55,000 individuals in a six-county region.

Aside from our 40-bed acute care hospital, two 60-bed nursing and rehabilitation centers, 12-bed assisted living facility, 32-apartment retirement community, state-of-the-art sleep center, and five outreach medical centers, Mile Bluff offers a wide variety of specialty care services. In addition, over 50 visiting specialists see patients at Mile Bluff.
