Hancock Health was the dream of Mrs. Fannie Andis. Mrs. Andis lost her one and only child at birth. She always felt that if a hospital had been in Greenfield, her child would not have died. Ultimately, she began a crusade to bring a hospital to Greenfield. She donated the land to the county where the hospital currently sits, and in 1951, Hancock Memorial Hospital was established. In 2005, the hospital was renamed Hancock Regional Hospital.
Since then, Hancock Health has provided Hancock County with the services of a full-service community hospital with a focus on primary care, patient comfort and convenience. Hancock Health offers a high percentage of private rooms, a highly skilled medical and professional nursing staff. We have a state-of-the-art surgery department, 24-hour emergency services, OB services, progressive and critical care, gero-psych unit, home healthcare, occupational health, a transitional care unit, a total oncology program including a state-of-the-art radiation oncology center, and a full compliment of inpatient and outpatient services that are competitively priced.
In 2000, to meet the growing health and wellness needs of the community, Hancock Health relocated its fitness facility, Lifetime Fitness, to a new and larger 33,000 sq. ft. facility and renamed it Hancock Wellness, LLC. Hancock Wellness focuses on the five dimensions of wellness for a complete health regimen rather than the fitness component alone.
Hancock Health has a history of responsiveness to the needs of the people of Hancock County and the surrounding areas. Because of a progressive Board, Medical Staff, and associates; the hard work and dedication of all; and the strong support of the community; Hancock Health is able to provide a wider range of programs and services than most community based hospitals of its size.
