What is now Levering Regional Health Care Center was once Levering Hospital. The original hospital was opened in 1903 and was a pioneer for hospitals in rural Missouri. Levering was named after Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Levering who donated both the land and the building. Over the years, a number of additions have complimented the original structure and recent upgrades have created a beautiful internal living environment. This historic landmark continues to make positive contributions to the lives of the residents in and around Hannibal as it has done for more than 100 years.
