Wiregrass Medical Center
Wiregrass Medical Center, formerly Wiregrass, Hospital, opened as Geneva County Hospital in July 1955.
For over five decades, Wiregrass Medical Center has been providing healthcare services to southeastern Alabama and northwest Florida residents.
Founded in 1955 as Geneva County Hospital, the facility was constructed as part of the Hill-Burton act. The facility was deemed as a 'modern 33 bed facility," and being "one of the most complete small hospitals in the entire United States." The building won an award for outstanding hospital design, and with a total of 25,000 square feet housed the most up to date equipment.
Growth over the years has resulted in a hospital with 67 acute care beds, a Nursing Home with 96 beds, and a Sr. Care Unit with 16 beds. Currently, Wiregrass Medical Center has over 155,000 square feet of space under one roof.
We recently celebrated our 50th anniversary showcasing our tremendous growth and modern up to date facilities.
Over the years the facility has expanded many times not only locally, but outward as well with put physician services in outlying communities.
Wiregrass Medical Center's entire team strives to meet the changing medical needs of the community. With today's shift to shorter hospital stays, Wiregrass Medical Center provides an extensive outpatient surgery and rehabilitation services.
Wiregrass Nursing Home and Lifetime Health Services also extends the continuum of care available locally in our community.
Wiregrass Medical Center offers compassionate treatment, state of the art technology, and a competent staff of caring professionals.
