Introduction

 

These records donated to the Hayes Presidential Center by Memorial Hospital of Sandusky County (Fremont, Ohio) in several deposits, most recently in 2011.

 

Agency History

 

Memorial Hospital of Sandusky County, Ohio dates back to the year 1915, when a public campaign was conducted to raise money for the establishment of a community hospital in Fremont, Ohio.  Colonel and Mrs. Webb C. Hayes contributed $100,000 to the effort, while local citizens raised an equal amount.  The Memorial Hospital Association was incorporated on 23 October 1915 and the hospital was dedicated on 6 October 1918.

 

A training school for nurses was established 3 September 1918, prior to the opening of Memorial Hospital.  In August 1926, a campaign was launched to build a nurses’ home adjoining the hospital and the Mary Miller Hayes School of Nursing, which formally opened its doors 2 August 1928.  The school operated out of Memorial Hospital for several years until it ceased operations on 1 June 1933. 

 

The hospital has undergone many changes since its first full year of operation, including several major expansions and renovations in nearly every decade of its existence.  In 2001 the Weitzel-Kern Surgery Center was completed, adding an additional 30,000 square feet of space.  The most recent expansion took place in 2007 with the construction of the Herbert-Perna Center for Physical Health, located on the campus of Memorial Hospital, situated near Memorial Parkway and Buckland Avenue.

 

Scope and Content
