About Us

The page might say “About Us” but it’s really about you.

It is said we are fiercely independent and they’re right. In a time of rampant consolidation in hospital circles, your hospital chooses to remain independent because we believe that is best for you and for the region.

Like schools, a hospital should be a focal point for a community or region’s identity. We are a huge regional asset and our relationship with the communities we serve is important. Trust us, nobody is going to care more about our local residents than the people who live and work local. We do believe that in some cases it makes sense to partner with another organization that can complement us while respecting our independence.

Memorial has focused on smart business decisions while never losing sight of the reason we are here in the first place: to keep you healthy and take care of you when you are not.

Our reason for being.

There is a distinct difference between caring for patients and caring about them. In an age where healthcare has become at times impersonal, Memorial Health still believes that holding a hand, lending an ear, and speaking a kind word are just as important to you and your family as our latest medical and technological advances. You’re at the heart of all we do and all we plan to do in the future. You are why we’re here.

To promote wellness and improve the health of people in our community.

Together, creating a new standard for healthcare.

In 1945, influential members of the Marysville area community recognized the need to build a hospital to provide healthcare for community members, including those returning from World War II. They gained funding through the Hill-Burton Act, but it wasn’t enough to cover the cost of building a new hospital. That’s when the farmers, merchants, laborers, and business owners stepped forward and gave whatever they could – raising more than $300,000. Memorial Hospital of Union County opened on March 17, 1952, with 40 beds and a staff eager to care for the people who made it all possible.
Since then, as Union County and the surrounding areas grew to over 84,000 residents, we’ve grown right alongside. In Fall of 2014, we started a new and major chapter in our history with our restructuring into Memorial Health, an independent health system which includes:
