Hospital History

Prior to the construction of the medical center, there were several small hospitals in Cambridge, Ohio. To meet the needs of our growing community, several of the hospitals joined together in 1946 and raised a projected $350,000 to build a new hospital.

We first opened our doors in 1952 as Guernsey Memorial Hospital, named after Guernsey County. In 1966, we consolidated with St. Francis Hospital and, as our medical services increased in subsequent years, we completed a $10 million dollar facility expansion and upgrade.

Early in the 1980s, we added a surgery center, laboratory, and radiology division.

A few years later we expanded the Emergency Department and opened an intensive care unit and our Community Health Link building to focus on mammography services. 1995 Guernsey Memorial Hospital changed its name to Southeastern Ohio Regional Medical Center.

In 2001 we added a cardiac catheterization lab, a sleep disorder center and a childbirth center, as well as new building on Brick Church Road, which houses industrial medicine, physical and occupational rehabilitation, and sports medicine. Finally in 2004, we established a new wound care wing at our main campus.

Southeastern Med has kept pace with the growth in outpatient services as healthcare technology advances. Today, our medical center continues to offer a full complement of services at our 84-bed facility.

Our health care system is Guernsey County’s largest employer, and we take that civil obligation seriously. Along with providing health care services, we strive to lift up our community.

We continue to upgrade our technology and increase our staff and physicians to provide you with the best possible medical care, right here at home.
