History of Hocking Valley Community Hospital
Hocking Valley Community Hospital began as a for-profit entity in 1906 and became a community non-profit hospital in 1949. The original structure was a local residence which underwent multiple revisions as community needs expanded. In 1963, responding to pressures of modern medicine and advancing technologies, the community raised funds to build a 93 bed hospital which is the nucleus for the current facility.
