Tornado hit hospital reopens

A hospital in southeast Missouri’s Dexter that took a direct hit from a tornado has reopened, after being closed for almost a month. 

Southeast Health reopened their hospital in Stoddard County Wednesday morning. 

The Dexter hospital’s emergency room, inpatient units and behavioral health are now open … after extensive repairs and cleanup. 

The hospital’s imaging department and lab have also reopened. 

Outpatient services are set to reopen at full capacity later this week. The National Weather Service (NWS) in Paducah says an EF-2 tornado packing 120 mile-per-hour winds slammed into the Dexter hospital on July 10.
