People Care More Here
It's more than just a motto at Perry County Health System (PCHS). It is the motivation behind everything we do. PCHS is small enough to provide individual attention to patients, yet large enough to provide the latest technology and depth of specialty available in larger cities. If we can be of any assistance during your visit to Perry County Memorial Hospital (PCMH), please notify a hospital volunteer or employee. If you have any questions prior to your visit, please call 573.547.2536.
