“The quality care you want. Close by.” This has been Decatur County Memorial Hospital’s motto for more than 50 years as they strive to serve our community with the quality care it deserves. But this wouldn’t be possible without the brave men and women who have fought for our country’s freedoms. The hospital was founded in 1922 as a World War I memorial to the veterans of our community and has remained our Decatur County Memorial Hospital ever since.

Decatur County Memorial Hospital would like to invite all veterans and their families to their Veteran’s Day Ceremony on Monday, November 12. The service will be around the flagpole near the front of the hospital beginning at 11 am. There will be a presentation by President & CEO Rex McKinney, National Anthem sung by members of the South Decatur High School Choir, and a gun salute to honor those who have served. After the ceremony, all veterans will receive a free lunch courtesy of the hospital.

The hospital is honored to say “thank you” to all of our local veterans, letting them know how much they are appreciated for their service and their sacrifices. Please join DCMH on November 12 for their Veteran’s Day Ceremony.

To reserve your spot for lunch, please call 812-663-1182 on or before November 5.
