Since 1937, Alton Memorial Hospital has cared for residents in Alton, Illinois and the surrounding communities in a five-county area. A gift to the community from the Smith family of Alton, the hospital today is a full-service community hospital. We offer patients a variety of inpatient and outpatient services, including surgery services, medical imaging, interventional and diagnostic heart services, physical therapy, rehabilitation, 24-hour emergency care, ambulance services, cancer care, women’s health and family birth center and more. In 2010, the hospital completed a major bed tower expansion with 76 state-of-the-art private rooms.
In addition to the hospital, Alton Memorial owns a freestanding 62-bed long-term care facility, Eunice Smith Home, on the hospital campus. The hospital also enjoys the support of more than 200 volunteers and auxiliary members.
Alton Memorial Hospital is a member of BJC HealthCare, one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health care organizations, with more than 27,000 employees in the greater St. Louis, southern Illinois and mid-Missouri regions. BJC HealthCare serves patients and their families in urban, suburban and rural communities through its 15 hospitals and multiple community health locations.
