Pulaski Memorial Hospital (PMH) was the vision of physicians and county leaders concerned with the community's healthcare needs. In 1963, we opened our doors to provide the area with maternity, general surgery, and in-patient care. For over 50 years, Pulaski Memorial has been central to the lives of the residents of Pulaski County and surrounding areas. The hospital's front was remodeled in 2002 to include a new physical therapy area and a new lobby.
As healthcare is changing, PMH has also changed from a 30-bed hospital to a 25-bed critical access hospital and has added many service lines, including pain management and a number of therapeutic areas such as physical, pulmonary, cardiac, and lymphedema therapies. Now a nationally recognized facility, PMH has been selected as a Top 20 critical access hospital and a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Mentor Hospital for Quality.
The hospital continues to grow. In October 2013, local physicians and nurse practitioners became the PMH Medical and Surgical Group moving into the impressive Medical Office Building (MOB) right behind the hospital. Since that time, the Group has grown to twenty-three physicians and nurse practitioners. With this continued growth, the Medical Office Building continues to grow with it. PMH broke ground on a second expansion in November 2020. This expansion is the largest building project the hospital has undertaken since its opening in 1963. When complete, the available square footage will double in size, offering almost twice as many exam rooms. Additionally, PMH has opened four more clinics in Francesville, Knox, Monterey, and North Judson. Also demonstrating the hospital's continued growth was the unveiling of two state-of-the-art surgical suites and a new state-of-the-art MRI machine and CT scanner.
PMH strives to deliver clinical excellence, combined with unmatched service in a comforting atmosphere with individualized attention. With what is best for the community always in mind, the hospital will continue its original mission of offering modern services, equipment, doctors, and staff to provide exceptionally high quality and convenient healthcare.
