About Lane Memorial

Lane Memorial Hospital is committed to wellness and providing quality, cost-effective healthcare services in a legal and ethical manner.

When Lane Memorial opened in November, 1960, we were a 40-bed acute care not-for-profit hospital. Lane has continued to grow over the years by expanding facilities, updating technology, and offering new services.
