Pomerene Hospital

Overview

The Joel Pomerene Hospital Company was established in 1919 as a not-for-profit corporation with the goal of building a hospital in Holmes County. County taxpayers later passed a 1.5-mil levy to supplement the money donated by the Pomerene family and build the Joel Pomerene Memorial Hospital, which opened its doors on June 1, 1937, as a county hospital. The original facility started with a six bed women’s ward, a three bed men’s ward, six private rooms, a three bed OB ward and a nursery with 5 cribs. There were 10 physicians on staff. Today we have more than 325 employees and 80 physicians. After several major renovation and expansion projects, the hospital has 3 floors and more than 30 departments. Pomerene is one of the largest employers in Holmes County and serves the greater Holmes County area with some patients residing in contiguous counties.
