How the hospital came to be
In 1947, 16 local leaders detected a need to expand the aging St. Edward's Hospital which led to the county's decision to build a new hospital. On June 22, 1953, Memorial Hospital of Floyd County was dedicated in memory of Floyd County community members who served during wartime. The name was then changed again in the late 1980s to Floyd Memorial Hospital and Health Services. The current name, Baptist Health Floyd, is due to our recent acquisition by Baptist Health - a family of hospitals, care centers, physician offices and facilities headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky.
Along with name changes, the hospital has made many physical alterations over the years as well. Baptist Health Floyd has continuously responded to community needs and national trends by undergoing numerous renovations to provide the latest healthcare services to the Southern Indiana region.
Since its inception in 1953, Baptist Health Floyd has emerged to be an outstanding regional healthcare provider. Its medical staff is a well-built team of more than 600 physicians, representing a variety of specialties. The hospital currently employs over 2,000 associates.
