Kossuth County is blessed with outstanding, full-service medical services. Primary care physicians, women's health services, emergency care, dentists, optometrists and chiropractors are well-established and thriving in Kossuth County.

Kossuth Regional Health Center is not your typical rural hospital and physician clinic. Our medical staff includes board-certified physicians and extenders with specialties in family practice, internal medicine, women's health care and surgery. Our physicians are experienced and progressive. Kossuth County provides them the best of both worlds — a varied and challenging practice and an outstanding quality of life and "city-like" services.

  • The quality of health care is among the best in the nation. Iowa ranks 8th in the nation for quality of care delivered, as identified by the Journal of American Medical Association.
  • The Iowa Hospital Association publication Profiles shows Iowa as the 5th healthiest state in the nation.
  • North Central Iowa is the lowest cost region in the U.S. for acute care hospital services, as identified by The Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care.
  • The cost of outpatient services for citizens in Algona is below the statewide rate for Iowa, as identified in the Wellmark-Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Iowa report.

This 40-bed regional health care facility boasts a modern and well-equipped surgery suite, Family Birthing Center, renal dialysis unit, physical and occupational therapy center and the full-spectrum of outpatient services including laboratory/drug screening, CT scanning, mobile MRI and chemotherapy. Our community health outreach services include school nursing, Corporate Wellness Program, childhood and adult immunizations, well-elderly clinics, cancer early detection programs, cholesterol screenings and blood pressure screenings. Our home care and hospice services and staff are award winning. Our physician clinics located in Algona and Bancroft, saw 40,000 patient visits in FY 2002.

Kossuth Regional Health Center knows the value of partnership and we are proud to be a member of the Mercy Medical Network — North Iowa. The Mercy Network was recently honored as one the top 100 integrated health care networks in the nation, for the second consecutive year.
