About Us

Our History

Medina Memorial Hospital, in Medina, NY, had its beginnings in 1908, when it was incorporated by a group of citizens who were interested in establishing a publicly-owned hospital. It began serving the community’s health needs with a 9-bed hospital in the Albert Swett Home – at the corner of Eagle and Prospect Streets – in Medina. Since moving to the current location, many renovations and expansions have taken place in the last century.

Medina Memorial Hospital has been part of the community since 1925 at its current location.
