Our Mission for Our Patients

We are a locally controlled, not-for-profit acute care community hospital committed to delivery of high quality, compassionate care that exceeds patient expectation. Our mission is to provide care to the sick and injured, on both an inpatient and outpatient basis, without regard to race, creed, national origin, age, gender, disability, or ability to pay.

Our hospital started in 1913 as a 15-bed facility and has now grown to be a 132-bed facility with over 1,000 employees. For over 100 years, we have been dedicated to providing our community with a full range of services. When you come to us you can expect to receive the highest quality treatment delivered with compassion and sensitivity.

Every employee of Sturdy, whether involved in direct patient care or working collaboratively to support patient care, is committed to providing patients with the highest quality of care throughout our hospital and practice settings, and to transition that level of care into the community through partnerships across the care continuum.

National Hospice and Palliative Care Month

In life, we all have so many responsibilities to plan for and think about, be it family or friends, work or home related. We tend not to have time or desire to plan for and talk about the other end of the spectrum—death. But talking about it is important, it lets your loved ones know your wishes. This month is National Hospice and Palliative Care Awareness Month and serves as a reminder that we should all think about our personal preferences with regard to end-of-life, including options such as Hospice and Palliative Care. Learn more about the inpatient palliative care program offered at Sturdy through our relationship with HopeHealth Palliative Care.
