Ottumwa Regional Health Center
About the Community
Ottumwa, also called the City of Bridges, began as a river town in 1851 and has transformed into a center for “cultural and commercial development.” The Des Moines River runs right through the city, providing a beautiful backdrop to the gorgeous city. Whether it is history, culture, athletics or music you are looking for, Ottumwa has it all. The city’s current population of 25,000 has been attracted to the city by the “low cost of living,” as well as great school districts, Indian Hills College, large business and commercial districts, and a strong industrial base.
