Senior Life Solutions

Aging brings many joys – more time with family and freedom in retirement – but our older years can also bring difficult life transitions including the loss of loved ones and stress from age-related health concerns.

Mitchell County’s Senior Life Solutions is an intensive outpatient group therapy program designed to meet the unique needs of adults typically 65 years of age and older struggling with symptoms of depression and anxiety often related to aging.

Assault Response Team (ART)/Sexual Assault Services

Abuse can happen to anyone of any age, race, social status, gender, class religion, occupation, education or sexual orientation. MCRHC’s Assault Response Team (A.R.T.) was formed in 2021 by a group of like-minded individuals who want to make a difference for victims of assault, abuse and human trafficking. We work with crisis intervention services and, if needed, law enforcement, to provide optimal care.

Our forensic nurses are trained specifically to care for assault victims, maintaining compassion and confidentiality.

You can reach the A.R.T. team directly by calling 641-732-6096 or by email at If you or anyone you know has been assaulted and needs help, please report to the MCRHC Emergency Room in Osage and request a forensic nurse. Exams may be free of charge through the Crime Victim Compensation Program in Iowa.

MCRHC has been recognized as a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital by the Chartis Center for Rural Health. This is the fourth time MCRHC has received this national honor.

Awarded honorees are determined by the results of iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®. To determine the 2024 list, the Chartis Center used the Hospital Strength Index, which assesses performance in eight areas: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charges, and financial efficiency.

Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility had one of the 100 highest overall scores among all rural and community and critical access hospitals nationally. There is no application process and recognition is solely based on performance data.

MCRHC previously received Top 100 honors in 2018, 2019 and 2023.
