Vision Statement

We will provide exceptional care that patients recommend, providers prefer, and employees embrace with pride.



Our History

Sheridan Community Hospital was founded in 1944 by Dr. Jagnow and Dr. Seelye. They both shared a dream of providing family health care on a personal level without sacrificing quality. Physicians here at Sheridan Community Hospital to this day are still guided by this principle. SCH started off in a leased farmhouse with 8 acute care and 4 obstetrical beds. The hospital was accepted by the community and was frequently operating to capacity. In 1954 the works of a new hospital was put in place and, on April 30, 1956, the first patient was admitted.
