  • It's the little things that keep us up at night.
    It's the little things that keep us up at night. Care givers at Memorial Hospital work hard to facilitate a safe, comfortable, and successful pregnancy. But it’s the personal attention and the family-friendly recovery rooms that ensure that our littlest patients (and their mommies) aren’t just cared for, they’re pampered.
  • Everyday we're adding life to years.
    Everyday we're adding life to years. We believe that quality of life is every bit as important as quantity of life. That’s why our senior living residences focus heavily on independence, activity and fun. We know every moment really does matter.
  • Meet your new breast friend.
    Meet your new breast friend. Women receiving 3D mammograms at Memorial Community Health will only notice a few extra seconds in their exam but the Genius™ 3D mammography system will notice a lot more!
  • Bigger than you think...  and growing, too.
    Bigger than you think... and growing, too. Sure, the staff of Memorial Hospital can stitch up the common laceration and set a broken bone. But did you know that ongoing hospital expansion is allowing specialized services like shoulder anthroplasty and total knee replacement to be performed locally?
  • People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.
    People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. The doctors of Memorial Hospital average 22 years of general practitioner experience right here in our community. Beyond just being your health care providers, they’re your neighbors, fellow committee members, and friends.
