Community Services

More Than a Hospital, We Are a Community

Southwest General was founded in 1920 by residents of the surrounding communities who wanted access to health care services close to home. Since that time, Southwest General has had a strong history of partnership with individuals and organizations in the community and remains deeply committed to improving the health and well-being of community residents.
