Grand View Hospital

Community

Grand View Hospital exists for one reason only – to provide for the health care needs of our community. Without the support of our community, Grand View would never have come to be and certainly could not have endured a century of challenges. We welcome you to share your stories and read about the experiences of your neighbors.

During the depression, the hospital was financially poor. In order to keep it running, people from the community served in many areas. One of the ways was through the newly formed auxiliaries.
