is fortunate to have such
excellent health care
Chamber officials have long understood that next to state government, hospitals and the health care industry are one of the community’s largest employers. When SSM Health St. Mary’s bought property for a new hospital in 2004, the Chamber contributed to an early stage engineering study which considered options for lowering costs on the Mission Drive interchange. The city, county and MoDOT became financial partners in developing the highway infrastructure. That interchange also opened the opportunity for other development along Highway 179, including the new Capital City High School currently under construction.
