Brief History

Concerned citizens met July 17, 1947, to discuss ways of providing modern health care to Seward County and the surrounding area. Through fundraising efforts and the Hill Burton plan, construction for a new hospital began July 4, 1949, and opened on September 1, 1950, in memory of World War I & II servicemen.

These first fundraising efforts created the original membership from which the Board of Directors had been selected until 1993. At that time, the corporate name was changed to Memorial Health Care Systems and the membership reopened.

Now, with many health care services to offer, and in collaboration with three physician clinic sites, family physicians and physician assistants, Memorial Health Care Systems is well prepared to carry on the dreams of the original concerned citizens by providing modern, technically-advanced health care services close to home.
