Administrator’s Welcome

Thank you for visiting our website, and for choosing Faulkton Area Medical Center (FAMC) for your health care needs. FAMC provides a broad range of services and programs to a population of over 2,600 in Faulkton and the surrounding county.

FAMC serves as a magnet for residents of the surrounding area with many patients driving miles to receive specialty services. Physicians, mid-levels, and professional staff are on call 24-hours per day, providing ambulance service, diagnostic lab and x-ray service, emergency service, and acute care.

Like many rural areas across the U.S., as the population density is decreasing and our citizens become increasingly older, we see a growing need for specialty medical services including home care, cardiology, oncology, therapy, rehabilitation, and various wellness programs. FAMC always strives to meet the needs of area residents with the best care possible. Therefore, we use the phrase I – CARE – S (Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, Excellence and Smile) to be the center piece for our core values. Come and allow us to assist you with your health and wellness needs.

On behalf of the entire FAMC team, please accept our best wishes for your excellence in health. We look forward to caring for you if the need arises.
