For 75 years, Clay County Medical Center (CCMC) has been a member of the American Hospital Association (AHA). In March, CCMC received a plaque in recognition of the milestone.

“It is an honor to commemorate 75 years of Clay County Medical Center’s involvement with an organization that aligns with our goals of providing the highest quality of care to those we serve,” said Chief Executive Officer, Austin Gillard.

Over the years, AHA members have collaborated to advance health care in America in historic and meaningful ways.  From expanding coverage and access to supporting the nation through the COVID19 public health crisis, AHA member hospitals and health systems have used the power of a collective voice to support patients and their families in the communities they serve.

Recognized as the national advocate for hospitals and the communities and patients they serve, the AHA works with its members; state, regional, and metropolitan associations; and other organizations to shape and influence federal legislation and regulation to improve the ability of its members to deliver high-quality health care.

Clay County Medical Center (CCMC) is a 25-bed critical access hospital which employs over 300 staff members in 30+ departments.  Additionally, there are more than 30 providers in the specialty clinic.  CCMC is Medicare certified to operate Swingbed and Hospice Inpatient/Respite beds and sponsors a Medicare Licensed Hospice program, Meadowlark Hospice.
