The dream of a local Hospital became reality when Decatur County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) opened its doors on February 4, 1922 at its current location. The much-anticipated, County-owned facility was built as a memorial to those Decatur County residents who fought and died for our country in World War I. The original hospital building, which is still in use, featured 16,000 square feet.
As the community and healthcare services continue to grow, multiple additions to both building and services have taken place. DCMH never forgets, however, their true mission to the community and why they opened their doors in 1922.
Although DCMH is located in a small town, the care and spirit the hospital brings equals that of a major-city hospital. The hospital pushes the boundaries of health care, and hopes to grow today and tomorrow to better serve this community.
