A Message From Our CEO

“Neighbors Caring for Neighbors” – that phrase describes our philosophy in caring for the communities we serve.  At Lincoln Community Hospital these are not just words.  Our history is based in this philosophy.  When the troops returned to Hugo and Lincoln County after World War II, there was recognition by the community that a hospital was needed in Lincoln County and in 1947 the Lincoln County Hospital Association was formed.  The first hospital Board of Directors well represented all of Lincoln County with members serving from Arriba, Genoa, Hugo, Limon and Karval.  The community volunteered its time and donated many of the materials and supplies necessary to construct our hospital.  The doors opened on June 9, 1959 and the hospital has been in continuous service since.  Our Care Center was added in 1965 and Home Health / Hospice services were initiated in 1986.  Primary Care Clinics were opened and now operate in Hugo, Limon and Flagler.  To supplement our primary care clinics we offer a range of Specialty services and provide walk in services at our Same Day Clinic in Hugo.  Our most recent addition, the Lincoln Park Living Center Assisted Living Facility was acquired in 2016.  Each service we offer, whether it is the care provided in our Level IV trauma center, or emotional support provided to clients in our Behavioral Health Services are provided knowing that each patient we care for is Family.  As a result we take our values of Quality, Stewardship, Comfort and Respect very seriously.  This effort is illustrated by many of the stories you can read on the “MVV” page of this website.  It is my sincere hope that you will never need our services, however if and when you do need healthcare, we take your trust seriously and will give you the highest level of care possible.  If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our care, or you would like to share a specific concern, please contact me at 719.743.2421 or email me at kstansbury@lchnh.com.  Thank you for your ongoing support of our hospital.  Through the support of our Neighbors, we are able to provide care to our neighbors and visitors throughout Eastern Colorado.
