About Us

Our staff of more than 850 employees, 125 volunteers, and nearly 200 physicians serves residents of Jackson, Jennings, Scott and Washington counties.

The foundation of our future of healthcare is being created today. That is why Schneck is working toward a better tomorrow by embracing efficient, safe health delivery practices and pioneering processes to stay ahead of healthcare reform. This means a better healthcare experience for you and your family today and for all of your tomorrows.
