Bolivar Medical Center

Bolivar Medical Center Logo

Bolivar Medical Center was first built in 1962 and named East Bolivar County Hospital. At that time a hospital operated in Rosedale which served the west side of the County. In 1971 the Rosedale hospital closed and East Bolivar County Hospital became Bolivar County Hospital. In September 1997, the name was changed to Bolivar Medical Center to reflect the increase in physician specialties and hospital services.

The medical staff consists of active members whose specialties include ophthalmology, obstetrics/gynecology, urology, pediatric dentistry, otolaryngology(ear,nose and throat specialist), and nephrology.
