Sturdy Memorial Hospital | Attleboro, MA

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, 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 all hospital settings, and to transition that level of care into the community setting through partnerships across the care continuum.

Happy 50th - Book Your Colonoscopy!

The standard for screening is to have a colonoscopy every 10 years after turning 50, but there are exceptions. Read more.
