April 19, 2022, marks 125 years since the founding of the organization now known as Memorial Health. This week, we will celebrate this milestone with our colleagues across central Illinois, including at Taylorville Memorial Hospital, but this achievement doesn’t belong to us alone.
Memorial Health began as a modest hospital and training school for nurses headquartered in a converted private home at Fifth Street and North Grand Avenue in Springfield. Today, we are truly a regional organization, serving patients across central and southern Illinois at our five hospitals and network of Memorial Care clinics. Our services encompass the entire breadth of health care, empowering people to live healthier, more fulfilling lives.
All of this would not be possible without the support
of numerous partners in the communities we serve, as well as our talented physicians, our dedicated volunteers, our hard-working colleagues and—most of all—the individuals and families who entrust us with their care. With your help, we will continue to fulfill our mission to improve lives and build stronger communities through better health, now and in the decades to come. Thank you for helping to make our founders’ dreams a reality.
President and CEO, Memorial Health
