Syracuse Area Health (formerly Community Memorial Hospital) has a rich history of providing high quality, cost effective healthcare across Southeast Nebraska.
The original hospital was built in 1952, and in 1972 the Community Memorial Hospital District was formed. It is governed by five elected board members serving four year terms. The hospital is a district hospital per the Nebraska Local Hospital District Act.
As Community Memorial Hospital continued to grow, physical expansion was limited on its original four-acre campus. Construction of the new Syracuse Area Health (SAH) medical campus began in March 2017 on a 28-acre site at the northwest intersection of Hwy 2 and Hwy 50. Syracuse Area Health opened for patient care in November, 2018 at 2731 Healthcare Drive.
