History

Wood County Hospital was founded in 1951 with support from the Wood County community. Wood County residents believed so much in the hospital back then; they played a key role in its early development. They sold blankets, went door-to-door asking for donations, held bazaars, and even sold a heifer to generate funds to make sure those early years were healthy.

The trust and respect that has accrued over its lifetime is built on a tradition of “being there” for Wood and Henry County residents – in good times and bad – 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week. There is no time when you could ask for help that it would not be there for you.

Today, with over 700 individuals employed, the Hospital is proud to be a valuable resource, ready to serve our community. We believe the strength of the community lies in having excellent health care close to home, with neighbors caring for neighbors. We’re proud to say that our community can depend on us.
