A Brief History

 Emma Smith circa 1890

For over 100 years Frederick Memorial Hospital has been caring for the healthcare needs of an ever-growing community. As we enter our second century of service, and bring to the community a new, state-of-the-art facility, Frederick Memorial Hospital pledges to remain true to those values and ideals so eloquently expressed in the simple words or our founder’s vision. In the late 1890’s as Emma Smith began her personal campaign to build a hospital in her home town, she solicited funds with this simple statement of her dream:  “to provide a place that would care for the sick, comfort the injured, and provide peace of mind to all who live in a town called Frederick.” 

Upon these principled words Frederick City Hospital opened its doors in 1902. Frederick Memorial Hospital simply remains –and will always be -  “ . . .a place to care for the sick, comfort the injured, and provide peace of mind . . .”
