Journey 2023

Lima Memorial is one of many hospitals across the nation facing significant capacity constraints within our inpatient units. In addition to increased health care needs and limited capacity, the prevalence of patients in observation status continues to increase. With our community's support, we will establish a dedicated Observation Unit at Lima Memorial Health System.
