Memorial Health System is the foundation of a high-quality, wide-ranging health organization known as Memorial Health System. More than 150 physicians representing over 40 medical specialties serve the 199-bed, not-for-profit hospital. Together with the hospital's 1,200 staff members, they form a team that provides a high level of care in the Mid-Ohio Valley.
The hospital has a long, rich history. The Memorial Health System Corp. was formed in 1921 by a group of local citizens who saw a need for a large, centralized health care center in the community. The undertaking would be a memorial to Washington County residents who lost their lives in World War I, these pioneers decided. A massive community fund-raising and organizational campaign came to fruition when, on July 9, 1929, the hospital admitted its first patient.
Memorial has responded through the years to the changing needs of the region, adding to its structure and services to meet the health care expectations of its patients. Today, the hospital and its affiliates offer a lifetime of care -- from prenatal services through retirement living.
At Memorial Health System, some amazing things happen each and every day. Not only are hundreds of lives touched by the dedication, expertise and compassion of our people and their abiding commitment to quality patient care, but quality of life is enhanced in other ways, too. As a leading employer in the area, Memorial Health System is committed to investing not only in the quality of health, but also quality of life in the communities where we live and work; investment in a way that supports the lives of our friends, neighbors and our own families.
