Freeman Rural Medicine Clinic 
The Freeman Rural Family Medicine Residency Clinic is a new 4,266-square-foot addition to Freeman Neosho Physician Group building, located across from Freeman Neosho Hospital, opened in November 2023.  The $1.2 million expansion provides Neosho and the surrounding communities in Newton and McDonald Counties with convenient access to physicians and medical services. It increases clinic and office space, including the addition of 14 examination rooms, consultation area and a small laboratory, and serves as the academic center for the Family Medicine Residency program Freeman currently operates in affiliation with Kansas City University.

The Rural Family Medicine Residency Clinic, which provides care for the entire family through every stage of life, adds two new resident physicians each year for three-year clinical stints. Typically, these doctors in training develop skills in laboratory work, medical procedures and patient care. Two more doctors will come aboard every year. The program in Neosho focuses on training physicians to work in rural settings far away from extensive medical facilities in larger cities.

Missouri is one of 10 states most in need of primary care professionals, according to a published Health Resources and Services Administration report. The Show-Me State met just 20.2 percent of required staffing needs in 2022.

The residency clinic is now scheduling new patients – infants through seniors – and appointments can be made by calling 417.347.4200.
