The Logan County Memorial Hospital of Guthrie Oklahoma was formerly named the Benedictine Heights Hospital. Construction started in 1926 and was slowly built due to the depression. It was completed in 1948.

The hospital was built due to the lack of space in the Methodist Episcopal Hospital, which had 40 beds and was located across the street.

Hospital Doors opened in 1948 from donations from the community and funding from the Benedictine sisters.

First floor and Basement: Administration Offices, Cafeteria, Kitchen, Temporary Emergency room and Morgue. Second Floor: Patient Rooms Third Floor: Nurseries Fourth Floor: X- ray , Orthopedic, Urology Rooms Fifth Floor: Chapel.

In 1953 an extra ward was built for children with disabilities and there was a long waiting list for admittance.

St Anthony’s in Oklahoma City had an agreement with the sisters to continue operating the facility in 1964. The facility was named the Alverno Heights Hospital but the arrangement was short lived.

In 1974 the hospital’s name was changed to the Logan County Memorial Hospital.

In 1974 the Logan County Hospital Association closed the Logan County Memorial Hospital due to the lack of spacing.

Presently, the Old Logan County Memorial Hospital is being nominated to the National Register of Historic Places and will be renovated into senior living apartments.

  2. The owner must make some renovation and give the place on rent or sold it to someone who willing to start a new business or wants to make a house. Nowadays the purchasing of and land is quite difficult because of its prices rises.
