Our Approach

Our approach stems from the desire to provide compassionate care to all our patients. We ensure that our processes and services are streamlined for the sake of efficiency and tailored to fit the needs of each individual patient. We treat all our patients with respect and work with them to assess their specific needs every step of the way.



Spectrum Health Care was founded in 1992 by a group of socially concerned members of the United Methodist Church. Originally named “Rain” (Regional Aids Interfaith Network), the organization was focused on providing compassionate care to people dying of AIDS in Central Missouri.


Our Promise

At Spectrum Health Care, it is our promise to foster an environment of trust and inclusivity to all our patients. We promise to provide the best and most compassionate care in a culturally competent environment.


Intro to Team

We are a team of passionate people, dedicated to providing support to those who might have otherwise been lost in the system. We strive to establish a community of trust and confidentiality between ourselves and our patients to ensure that they receive the best care possible.
