Hoefer Wysocki Architects (HWA) designed a 25-bed critical access replacement hospital for Barton County. As there was not sufficient space at the current site, the Board of Trustees purchased 50 acres of land to build a new hospital which allowed them to create a new identity and recapture markets lost due to the perception of care the existing facility had on the county. The site is accessible via a frontage road from US highway 71 and is located within the city limits of Lamar. The replacement hospital was built to house 25 beds plus all outpatient services currently offered. The ability to expand the four main hospital zones for future services to be offered was an important element in the design.

The design accommodates existing and future patient and staff needs, consolidates specialty clinics and physical therapies on campus, and creates a more efficient, flexible and functional floor plan that supports patient dignity and personhood. Our design emphasizes domestic aesthetics, art and warm home-like, non-institutional environments. The goal of the exterior design and interior lobbies was to create a landmark on the highway that captures the “Great Lodge” feeling of southern Missouri.

From the sound of music in the comfortable atrium and the smell of fresh baked cookies to serving healthy nutritious foods, the experience is at Barton County Memorial Hospital is an enjoyable one. Spacious private rooms, along with supportive caregivers trained to make your stay as pleasant as possible; focusing on the individual patient’s needs.

Project Highlights: 25-bed patient wing; 14 exam rooms; 6 emergency exam rooms; 2 operating rooms and support space; physical and cardiac therapy services; lab and radiology services; and medical department support services.
