Memorial Healthcare System History

Since its inception in 1953, Memorial has been providing high-quality healthcare services to South Florida residents. Now the fifth-largest public healthcare system in the country, Memorial has outperformed the industry by almost every measure and has become a national leader in safety, quality and service.

We have built our reputation on providing exceptional healthcare that focuses on patients and their families. We believe patient- and family-centered care is vital to the culture of all great hospitals.


The hospital is on the northwest corner of Johnson Street and North 35 Avenue, west of Interstate 95 (I-95) and east of the Florida Turnpike.

Valet Parking

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, valet services have been suspended at all Memorial hospitals, except at the Medical Office buildings, for each location.

Visitor Parking Garage

A visitor parking garage is available across from the main entrance of the hospital (accessible from North 35th Avenue). If you have a doctor's appointment or are visiting a patient in the hospital, you can get the $1 parking fee waived through validation at either the doctor's office or at the main entrance security booth.


On March 8, the building committee began developing plans for a new building. The Board of Lady Managers contributed $700 to start a building fund. In September, a two-story wing was added to the hospital. The addition boasted seven deluxe patient rooms with bathtubs.

The medical teaching staff, comprised of six consulting and eight visiting doctors, was formed.

On January 1, the School of Nursing opened with four students. The first graduation ceremony was April 29, 1904.

Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Named Among Best in Orthopedics and Cardiology and Heart Surgery by U.S. News & World Report

Once again, Joe DiMaggio Children&rsquos Hospital has been named among the top 50 children&rsquos hospitals in the nation for Orthopedics and Cardiology and Heart Surgery, in the 2021-22 Best Children&rsquos Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. The hospital is ranked #5 in Florida and as Florida&rsquos Best Children&rsquos Hospital for Orthopedics, based on patient outcomes, clinical capabilities and utilization of best practices for the care of children.

&ldquoIt is an honor for Joe DiMaggio Children&rsquos Hospital to be recognized among the top children&rsquos hospitals in the nation, once again. We are thrilled,&rdquo said Caitlin Stella, MPH, chief executive officer, Joe DiMaggio Children&rsquos Hospital and administrator for Pediatric Services, Memorial Healthcare System. &ldquoThis has been an extraordinary year in so many ways and our achievements in Orthopedics and Cardiology and Heart Surgery are a true reflection of our team&rsquos unwavering commitment to providing the safest and highest quality care for children. We continue to adapt and grow our services based on the needs of families and children in our community, and further our commitment to excellence in an environment that embraces patient- and family-centered care. When kids want to stay in the hospital, I would say that is a good review.&rdquo

Joe DiMaggio Children&rsquos Hospital Orthopedic Center has the largest group of fellowship trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons in the state of Florida, and one of the most well regarded in the country, providing world class care and expertise for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and sports-related injures affecting children, adolescents and young adults.

Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Pediatric Heart Institute is one of only three programs in Florida offering comprehensive heart care, including congenital heart disease and heart transplantation. Over the past decade, its cardiac transplant program has become one of the most active pediatric heart transplant programs in the state and offers services to children with serious heart conditions from fetal evaluations throughout childhood and into adulthood. The team&rsquos expertise spans across multiple disciplines, including congenital heart care, cardiomyopathy, heart failure, critical care and mechanical circulatory support. Additionally, during the pandemic, the Heart Institute spearheaded a multi-disciplinary team to treat children experiencing MIS-C, an inflammatory illness associated with COVID-19.

&ldquoWhen choosing a hospital for a sick child, many parents want specialized expertise, convenience and caring medical professionals,&rdquo said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News. &ldquoThe Best Children's Hospitals rankings have always highlighted hospitals that excel in specialized care. As the pandemic continues to affect travel, finding high-quality care close to home has never been more important.&rdquo

U.S. News introduced the &lsquoBest Children&rsquos Hospitals&rsquo rankings in 2007 to help families of children with rare or life-threatening illnesses find the best medical care available. The ratings, according to the publication, are a comprehensive source of quality-related information on U.S. pediatric hospitals and rely on clinical data and on an annual survey of pediatric specialists.

The 2019-20 rankings started with 4,653 hospitals, which represent virtually all U.S. community inpatient facilities. The rankings methodology considers clinical outcomes, such as mortality and infection rates, efficiency and coordination of care delivery and compliance with best practices.

All Four Memorial Healthcare System Adult Hospitals with ICUs Receive an “A” for Patient Safety in Spring 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade System

Memorial Healthcare System is proud to announce Memorial Regional Hospital, Memorial Hospital West, Memorial Hospital Miramar and Memorial Hospital Pembroke were awarded an &ldquoA&rdquo from the Leapfrog Group&rsquos Spring 2021 Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction recognizing Memorial&rsquos efforts in protecting patients from harm and meeting the highest safety standards in the United States.

The Safety Grade is based on in the hospitals&rsquo prevention of medical errors, infections and other harms among patients in their care.

Memorial Hospital Miramar is the only South Florida facility recognized as a straight &ldquoA&rdquo hospital in the Spring 2021 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade. One of only 27 hospitals in the United States to be awarded an &ldquoA&rdquo every grading cycle since 2012. Previously, in December 2020, Joe DiMaggio Children&rsquos Hospital was the only South Florida pediatric hospital named as a Top Children&rsquos Hospital nationally by The Leapfrog Group.

&ldquoThis recognition truly belongs to our staff, those who work behind the scenes and on the front line to ensure patient safety and offer high-quality care, even while combatting a pandemic,&rdquo said Aurelio M. Fernandez, III, FACHE, president and CEO, Memorial Healthcare System. &ldquoThe fact that all four adult hospitals with ICUs received &lsquoA&rsquo ratings, further exemplifies Memorial&rsquos commitment to providing optimal care throughout our system for the betterment of our patients and community.&rdquo

Developed under the guidance of a national Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,700 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade&rsquos methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.

&ldquoAn &ldquoA&rdquo safety grade is an elite designation that your community should be proud of,&rdquo said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. &ldquoThe past year has been extraordinarily difficult for hospitals, but Memorial shows us it is possible to keep a laser focus on patients and their safety, no matter what it takes.&rdquo


History of CHI Memorial

Men, women and children gave from their hearts in the late 1940s to raise $3 million for a nonprofit hospital to alleviate the shortage of beds in the area, and Memorial Hospital was opened in 1952. CHI Memorial continues to honor its covenant to provide the highest possible standards of compassionate health care and has gained national recognition as a leading health care system with three acute care hospitals. CHI Memorial Hospital Hixson was acquired in 1998 and CHI Memorial Hospital Georgia was acquired in December 2017.


Table 2: Selected U.S. Hospital Statistics, 1960 and 1970

Source: “The Nation’s Hospitals: A Statistical Profile,” Hospital Statistics 45, Part 2 (August 1, 1971): 447.

Community hospitals also offered more comprehensive and complex services such as open heart surgery, radioisotope procedures, social work services, and in-house psychiatric facilities. [18]  The growth of these hospitals, along with the advent of new treatments and new technologies, contributed to escalating in-patient hospital costs, leading the federal government to impose wage and price controls on hospitals in 1971. Indeed, the years after 1965 and the passage of Medicare and Medicaid were pivotal for everyone in health care because of increased government regulation. Medicare incorporated a prospective payment system in 1983, with federal programs paying a preset amount for a specific diagnosis in the form of Diagnostic Related Groups, or DRGs. [19]  As third party payers gained power and status, DRGs radically changed Medicare reimbursements. They also considerably altered hospital decisions, with a focus changing toward greater efficiency. [20]

The 1980s also witnessed the growth of for-profit hospital networks, resulting in increased vulnerability of smaller not-for-profit institutions. More than 600 community hospitals closed. [21]  It was at this time that both for-profit and not-for-profit institutions began forming larger hospital systems, which were significant changes in the voluntary hospital arena. A system was a corporate entity that owned or operated more than one hospital. This also has come about with the advent of DRGs as single health care facilities seek to affiliate to cut down on duplication of costs.

Cost containment was the theme of hospitals in the 1990s. The balance of power in these institutions shifted from caregivers to the organized purchasers of care, with Medicare and Medicaid becoming a huge governmental influence in all types of hospitals. In the private sector, insurance companies began to take a more active role in managing hospital costs. Health maintenance organizations, which contracted with a network of providers for discounted prices, increased in importance. The focus of care shifted to outpatient services, ambulatory care centers for acute care, and hospices and nursing homes for the chronically ill. [22 ]  Then in 1997, the Balanced Budget Act decreased Medicare payments to hospitals by $115 billion over five years, including a projected $17 billion reduction in Medicare payments to hospitals. [23]

At the turn of the twenty-first century, rising costs have forced many hospitals to close, including public hospitals that have traditionally served as safety nets for the nation’s poor. Some of the larger not-for-profit corporations have bailed out public facilities through lease arrangements, such as the one between the Daughters of Charity’s Seton Medical Center and the public Brackenridge Hospital in Austin, Texas, that occurred in 1995.  [24]  These types of arrangements have had their own problems, however, such as the complications that arise when a large secular organization such as Brackenridge tries to join forces with a hospital whose policies are dictated by its religious affiliation. 

If the professionalization of nursing has had the important effect on the quality of the hospital experience that Charles Rosenberg has suggested, the changes in the nature of hospitals have had a profound effect on the profession of nursing, since the vast majority of nurses practice in a hospital setting. The future of both the hospital as an institution and nursing as a profession will depend on the decisions we make in the coming years about how health care is provided and to whom.

Our History

The story of St. Charles began in 1918 when the first hospital in Bend officially opened on the banks of the Deschutes River. It started with five Sisters of St. Joseph whose mission was to care for all or care for none. The current location of the Bend hospital opened in 1975. It became a community, nonprofit organization in the 1970s and maintained an affiliation with the Catholic Church until February 2010. The spirit of compassionate caring first fostered by the Sisters of St. Joseph is alive and well at St. Charles today.

For 100 years, St. Charles Health System, and its associated hospitals, has provided quality health care to all those in need. The system itself began in 2001 when St. Charles Medical Center in Bend and Central Oregon District Hospital in Redmond merged to form Cascade Health Services. In 2008, the system grew to include Pioneer Memorial Hospital in Prineville through a lease agreement. And in 2010 the organization changed its name from Cascade Healthcare Community to St. Charles Health System. The growth of the system continued in 2013 when Mountain View Hospital in Madras became part of the St. Charles family and changed its name to St. Charles Madras. On Sept. 21, 2015, Pioneer Memorial Hospital closed and a new hospital, St. Charles Prineville, opened for service.

St. Charles Bend

The first hospital in Bend officially opened in 1918 on the banks of the Deschutes River. It was built by five Sisters of St. Joseph and their mission was to care for all or care for none. The current location of the Bend hospital opened in 1975. It became a community, nonprofit organization in the 1970s and maintained an affiliation with the Catholic Church until February 2010. The spirit of compassionate caring first fostered by the Sisters of St. Joseph is alive and well at St. Charles Bend today.

St. Charles Redmond

In 1951, Redmond made history as the first city in Oregon to form a public hospital district. Central Oregon District Hospital was built in 1952 on 20 acres north of town. The public supported the hospital with tax dollars and community members were elected to serve on the Board of Directors up until the time of the merger between the Bend and Redmond hospitals. As part of its continued commitment to the Redmond community, St. Charles Health System invested in the Redmond facility through a $30 million addition that opened in 2006.

St. Charles Prineville

The new 62,000 sq. ft. St. Charles Prineville campus opened on Sept. 21, 2015 and offers a wide range of patient, family and visitor services including primary care and specialty care clinics, Emergency Department, Lab, Radiology and Rehab. St. Charles Prineville is leading the way as St. Charles Health System transitions from a medical model to a team-based, integrated patient-centered care model. To be more patient-focused, individual physician offices have been eliminated in favor of central work and lounge spaces for the entire patient-care team. The traditional patient waiting area has been replaced with a concierge-style patient greeting desk and the public area includes seating and a café, which may also be used for community events and gatherings.

St. Charles Madras

St. Charles Madras, previously Mountain View Hospital, first opened its doors in 1967. The hospital worked closely with St. Charles Health System through a management agreement for many years before formally joining the St. Charles system in 2013.

St. Charles Madras is a critical access hospital with 25 licensed beds and 240 employees. The hospital provides surgical services, imaging, intensive care, a Family Birthing Center, medical and emergency care and an outpatient laboratory.

All of the St. Charles Health System hospitals, clinics and other services are dedicated to the communities we serve and are committed to improving the health of our population, reducing the costs of care and enhancing the patient care experience.

Pioneer Memorial Hospital

Pioneer Memorial Hospital opened in 1950 through a fundraising drive by the community to expand hospital services in Crook County. Previously, hospital services had been provided in two different homes in the area. The first was Home Hospital located in Elkins House in 1934 and the second was known as The Cornett House, which opened in 1938. Through a lease agreement in 2008, Pioneer Memorial Hospital joined the St. Charles family. A community board governed the hospital's assets. Pioneer Memorial Hospital closed on Sept. 21, 2015 when St. Charles Prineville was opened.
