More than 500,000 men in the U.S. choose vasectomy for birth control every year. Vasectomy eliminates the supply of sperm to semen by cutting and sealing the tubes that carry sperm.

Vasectomy is an outpatient procedure. It is performed in our Osage location by board-certified urologist Dr. Christopher Adams. The surgery is typically low-risk with minimal recovery time.

A vasectomy is intended to be irreversible, so you need to be certain you do not want to father additional children. It does not protect against STDs.

To learn more, call 641-494-5200 and ask for a consultation in Osage with Dr. Adams.

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.
