Focused on Wellness for a Thriving, Engaged City
In St. Joseph, we focus on health care from a collaborative, “big picture” view. Our health care resources keep families physically and mentally well through disease prevention, disease treatment and healthy choices. We know this is a team effort, and we work to build civic engagement and interest in a healthy community. The results? Education, economic development and individual empowerment are all growing. From Mosaic Life Care — a Mayo Clinic Care Network and selected as one of “100 Top Hospitals” — to comprehensive mental health care through Family Guidance Center and others, St. Joseph has an uncommon commitment to total wellness and quality health services.
MAJOR MEDICAL CENTER

As a true community partner, Mosaic fosters unique initiatives across the region, including a youth leadership program, an active Foundation and several collaborative projects focused on overall wellness.
HOME HEALTH and TELEMEDICINE
We’re a city that embraces health care technology, because we know it means flexibility and comprehensive access to services. Telemedicine appointments are available in St. Joseph through partners like the Mayo Clinic and Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics around Kansas City. Working in partnership with major insurance and health care entities, Mosaic Life Care offers innovative telemedicine kiosk stations to connect individuals with a healthcare provider on-screen within 30 minutes. When home health is needed to help your family reach your health goals, we offer an extensive list of resources and options — including skilled nursing and physical therapy.
URGENT CARE and EMERGENCIES
Things happen. We’re ready. In St. Joseph, you’ll find a state-of-the-art emergency clinic at Mosaic Life Care hospital, a Level II Trauma Center with LifeNet life flight service. Mosaic also offers a conveniently-located Mosaic Urgent Care Clinic. For drop-in needs, Urgent Care Express is family-owned by a local physician team, and Medclinic, Family Medicine Associates and U.S. Healthworks are also ready to meet your needs with professionalism and speed. (We’ve got you covered.)
BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CARE
Mental and emotional wellness are a key part of overall health. In St. Joseph, we focus on prevention, diagnosis treatment and recovery. Professional resources include Family Guidance Center, offering services including children/youth behavioral health, adult mental health, substance use disorder services and 24-hour crisis intervention. Northwest Health Behavioral Health Services and Mosaic Life Care integrate behavioral health services into disease management with inviting and flexible options.
Ready to enjoy the smile that’s uniquely “you” in St. Joseph? You might be surprised at the number of top-notch dental options we offer. Several family-owned practices offer decades of experience, while organizations like Northwest Health Services provide cleaning, treatment and restorative work for all income levels. For orthodontics, you’ll find all the top technologies you want with the “small town” kind of attention and care.
When it comes to your vision, we’ve got options. Few cities can offer the number of choices we can, from family-owned optometry clinics alongside well-known retail names. Our vision care is modern and innovative, without “losing sight” of what matters most — you and and your family.
When special needs arise, from internists to surgeons and from pediatric care to the needs of our senior population, St. Joseph’s team of physicians and professionals are available at every level. Mosaic Life Care offers a direct connection to the Mayo Clinic as a Mayo Clinic partner and has a collaborative relationship with Children’s Mercy Clinics in Kansas City. Family physicians, outpatient surgery centers and care providers span a full spectrum of solutions in St. Joseph. It’s an uncommon level of specialty care that’s less than an hour from Kansas City medical centers — another reason our city is a great place to call home.
It’s wonderful to find such skilled physicians and specialists in a smaller city. The technology and expertise are what you’d expect from a larger location, but you also get the personalized care at every step. When unique needs arise, our doctors can work collaboratively with KU Medical Center, Children’s Mercy and North Kansas City because they’re all nearby.– Anonymous
