Celebrating 95 Years and Counting

Huntsville Memorial Hospital was chartered on April 4, 1927, as a memorial honoring the military heroes of World War I. The original mission of the hospital was to provide “benevolent and charitable services” to those in need. For over 95 years, Huntsville Memorial Hospital has continued to set the standard for community-focused, quality care.
