History and Mission

In 1912, the Winchester Visiting Nurse Association opened the first Winchester Hospital in the three-story Todd House on Washington Street. With 12 beds, the new hospital flourished immediately, making it quickly apparent that a larger hospital was necessary.

Although the buildings and technology have changed dramatically over the course of the hospital’s history, the dedication of the hospital’s caregivers remains constant. Their unwavering commitment to quality patient care makes Winchester Hospital what it is today–an award-winning, full-service hospital with state-of-the-art technology delivered with a personal touch.

For more than a century, Winchester Hospital has been providing award-winning care. We are honored to be consistently recognized with designations from outside accrediting organizations and awards recognizing us as a best place to work.
