Memorial Minute - May 29, 2019
May 29, 2019
This month, LifePoint Health, of which Memorial is a part, celebrates 20 years of Making Communities Healthier. The company was founded in May 1999 as LifePoint Hospitals. It had 23 community hospitals in nine states. LifePoint was created on the belief that everyone deserves quality healthcare close to home and that strong hospitals create strong communities. Today, LifePoint is a much different company than it was 20 years ago. We have grown from a hospital company to a healthcare leader with 89 hospitals across 30 states. Nationwide, we are nearly 60,000 employees strong. LifePoint is dedicated to advancing the many ways we achieve our mission of Making Communities Healthier as we strive to become THE industry leader in community-based healthcare. Memorial is proud to be one of the leading hospitals in patient quality and safety throughout LifePoint and nationwide!
