About Sterling Regional MedCenter
Sterling Regional MedCenter’s history began in 1938 with Good Samaritan, a small hospital operated by Lutheran Hospitals and Home Society. In 1954, that hospital was replaced with Logan County Hospital, a new, 57-bed county facility constructed on donated land. In 1987, Lutheran Health Systems (successor to Lutheran Hospitals and Home Society) purchased the county facility and two years later opened Sterling Regional MedCenter. Today, Lutheran Health Systems is Banner Health and Sterling Regional MedCenter continues its legacy of providing excellent patient care.
Sterling Regional MedCenter has provided medical care to residents of northeastern Colorado and the surrounding area since 1938. The hospital offers a full range of health care services, and a staff dedicated to providing our patients with excellent care. Sterling also is home to the David Walsh Cancer Center, which offers an unprecedented level of cancer care to region. For more information, visit www.BannerHealth.com/Sterling.
