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.
