Our History

A lot has changed since Perry County Memorial Hospital was founded on the banks of the Ohio River over 60 years ago. Technology has changed. New “miracles” of modern medicine have been introduced. Healthcare itself has evolved from the days when an old country doctor arrived on the front porch with his black bag of cures and good judgment.

Along the way, Perry County Memorial Hospital has managed to keep ahead of the curve. Only two parts of our history have remained fixed. First: We still overlook the Ohio River. Second: Our commitment to improving the quality of life for the residents of Perry County and the surrounding area.

We wouldn’t have it any other way.
