Located in scenic southwest Missouri, Springfield is the third largest city (population 170,000) in Missouri. We are located less than 1 hour to Branson, 2 hours to Kansas City, and 3 hours to St Louis. Springfield is “hometown friendly” with a cost of living that is 13% below the national average. One of the major factors attracting people to the Springfield area is the low cost of housing which is 25% below the national average. People travel from all over southwest and central Missouri to shop at Costco and the famous Buc-ee’s. We are a college town with 9 public and private colleges, including Missouri State University. We have shopping, museums, restaurants, theaters, a zoo and fairgrounds, parks, and many caves to explore. The Double AA team for the St Louis Cardinals offers a glimpse of future (and sometimes, current) major league players. Afford the new home you’ve always wanted, simplify your commute, and enrich your life amid the natural beauty we call home.

This is an opportunity to work at a facility which is located in a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPS), or Medically Underserved Area/Population (MUA/MUP).
