Our History

In 1951, Wayne General Hospital opened its doors as a 30–bed institution to care for the citizens of Wayne County. Demands for hospital services increased and in 1962, additional beds and an expanded ancillary services area were added. In 1977, a new facility was completed at the present location.  This facility is an 80-bed general acute care hospital offering laboratory services, radiology, physical therapy, inhalation therapy, surgery, an intensive–care unit, swing-bed, obstetrics, home health, hospice, wellness center, ambulance services, and emergency room services. Today the hospital — with modern equipment, expanded services, and specialized personnel — has the ability to provide more medical services to the people of this area.

Wayne General Hospital will continue to provide the medical care needs for today and tomorrow.
