History

The Johnson County Community Hospital of today is an example of perseverance and a passion by the community to keep its own hospital alive. It has been housed in several different buildings, operating with different sets of services under different names and was closed down completely on two occasions.

After the old Johnson County Hospital was shuttered, the hospital was acquired by Mountain States Health and reopened in 1998 as Johnson County Community Hospital. With the support of Mountain States the facility found stability while providing the people of the community with the health care services they need.
