Reid History

A video highlighting the first 100 years of Reid Hospital history:

Reid Hospital & Health Care Services opened as Reid Memorial Hospital in 1905. Daniel G. Reid - an industrialist whose wealth came from tin plating, railroads and steel - financed the construction.

Reid, originally from Richmond, was living in New York when he learned of the need to replace St. Stephen's Hospital, which had only 10 beds and was turning away about 50 patients a week. William B. Leeds, Reid's partner in business ventures and also a former Richmond resident contributed $10,000. An additional $10,000 was donated from the estate of Robert Morrison and $5,000 from James M. Starr's estate. Reid contributed the balance, about $130,000.  

The hospital name was in memory of Reid's wife, Ella, and their son, Frank, who both died before the turn of the century. The cornerstone was laid in September 1904 and Reid Memorial was dedicated July 27, 1905.

Reid Today

Nearly 100 years later, it became obvious the most cost-efficient and quality-driven option for continued growth would be a new facility.  In September 2004, Reid Hospital & Health Care Services broke ground at its new location near North Chester Boulevard.  After 10 years in the making and the opening of Reid Rehabilitation Center, the Medical Office Building and the Outpatient Care Center, Reid Hospital opened its doors in September 2008.

Today, Reid Hospital boasts numerous national accreditations and is a not-for-profit 217-bed regional referral medical center serving east central Indiana and west central Ohio. Reid's service area is home to about 280,000 people and includes five Indiana and two Ohio counties.

Reid Hospital is accredited by the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP), the Indiana State Department of Health, Medicare/Medicaid, American Association of Blood Banks, and the American College of Surgeons Community Cancer Program.
