Self Regional Healthcare began as Self Memorial Hospital in 1951 and was built to be one of the most advanced hospitals in the country. Local business leader and philanthropist James C. Self personally oversaw the construction and recruited top physicians from across the country.
The commitment to provide advanced care with leading edge technology continues today.
We're still an independent, not-for-profit hospital governed by a board of trustees comprised of community members. The difference is that we've grown into a major referral and medical center that provides advanced healthcare services to a population of more than a quarter of a million people.
At one time or another, everyone in the surrounding seven counties has been touched by Self. From a broken arm, to the birth of a child or chemotherapy, Self was always there. And we're still close to home with the latest technology and finest doctors. To separate Self from the community would be impossible. Community is a huge part of what we are, which explains the great sense of pride we feel when people say "I am Self."
