Barclay Memorial Hospital (BMH) has enjoyed a reputation for excellent medical care in an affluent community for over 70 years. In the mid-1940s, its community was mainly agricultural, but urbanization was beginning. Hospitals in the region were operating at capacity. Community members and physicians proposed a solution to the problem of overcrowding at local hospitals: form a hospital district supported by the community through a tax. Voters approved the hospital district in 1945 by a 5 to 1 margin. The first decision was to select a 15-acre campus. In 1947, voters approved an $8 million bond issue to finance construction and operation of a 275-bed hospital. The tax district spans seven townships that elect five district community members to a governing board for the district hospital’s four entities, which include the hospital, joint ventures that operate an urgent care center and a hospice, and the hospital foundation.
