About Massac Memorial Hospital

Here at Massac Memorial Hospital, we pride ourselves on going the extra mile for our patients to provide quality healthcare with a personal touch—all close to home.
Since welcoming our first patient in the spring of 1956, our patient care has been guided by our belief that healthcare should be delivered using state-of-the-art technology and procedures, as well as regard for the human spirit. From sore throats to serious heart conditions, every medical issue is an important one to us here at Massac Memorial. We understand that while a child with a high fever, painful ear infection, and sleepless parents may not warrant a trip to the emergency room, treating that child is just as important to us as treating a trauma patient in dire need. This is one of the many reasons we have expanded our primary care program with the addition of the Massac Memorial Medical Clinic. We offer many of the same state-of-the-art facilities and specialized physicians as larger hospitals with a close-to-home convenience that can’t be matched. We place great importance on maintaining a high nurse-to-patient ratio with low, to non-existent wait times. Our services reflect our high standards in satisfying the ever-changing demands of the modern healthcare industry, as well as our enduring commitment to quality patient care. Thank you to all who have trusted us with your care over the years. We know you’ve always had options when choosing to whom you turn for your healthcare needs—we hope you will continue choosing Massac Memorial Hospital.
