Syracuse Area Health (formerly Community Memorial Hospital) has a rich history of providing high quality, cost effective healthcare to all individuals seeking medical care in the following areas and beyond: Syracuse, Weeping Water, Otoe, Unadilla, Cook, Palmyra, Avoca, Douglas, Talmage, Burr, Elmwood, Lorton, Manley, Murdock, Dunbar, and Nehawka.
In 1952, the Community Memorial Hospital became a district hospital per the Nebraska Local Hospital District Act. It is governed by five elected board members serving four-year terms.
Syracuse Area Health has experienced many upgrades over the years, including the most recent remodel of patient rooms, nurses’ stations, hallways, front lobby, business office, pharmacy and administration areas. Our technology has also kept pace: we recently implemented digital mammography and a wellness lab.
We are committed to growing to fit the needs of our community and continuing to provide the best possible care for our friends, family, and neighbors in the Syracuse area for years to come.
