Ferrell Hospital have been a vital part of the community for over 80 years. Through the years, much has changed from the staff to the building, but one thing has remained the same .... the commitment to provide the best in healthcare.
Through times of war, economic hardship, and exciting times of growth and prosperity, the community surrounding Ferrell Hospital has continued to grow, always keeping their sense of family and small town pride. A large expansion was completed in the mid 1970s. The facility had to grow to meet the needs of the community.
With the changing population and needs of the community, Ferrell Hospital became a Critical Access Hospital in 2005. This allowed the hospital to offer healthcare services needed for the community. In April of 2005, Ferrell Hospital became a stand alone facility with management returning to a local Board of Directors made up of local physicians and business members.
Why The Need?
In the more than 30 years since the large expansion, Ferrell Hospital has continued to grow and thrive along with the community. New equipment and staff have been added over the years to offer the best healthcare across many areas. From our Emergency Room, which sees over 6,000 patients every year, to our multi-ancillary departments, our patients are given a place to come to seek quality healthcare. We continue to seek new areas and programs to better meet the community healthcare needs.
Healthcare today is an always changing and advancing field. These two elements have lead Ferrell Hospital to the decision to undertake an exciting course of change and growth to better meet the needs of the community. Planned Development was created to help raise resources to expand the hospital in several key areas that are currently in great need of updating and space.
