Hospital History

Hancock Health is an Indiana-based, full-service healthcare network serving Hancock County and the surrounding areas. Our health system includes Hancock Regional HospitalHancock Physician Network and more than 20 other healthcare facilities, such as wellness centerswomen’s clinicsfamily practices, and the Sue Ann Wortman Cancer Center.

Hancock Health was the dream of Mrs. Fannie Andis. Mrs. Andis lost her one and only child at birth. She always felt that if a hospital had been in Greenfield, her child would not have died. Ultimately, she began a crusade to bring a hospital to Greenfield. She donated the land to the county where the hospital currently sits, and in 1951, Hancock Memorial Hospital was established. In 2005, the hospital was renamed Hancock Regional Hospital.

Hancock Regional Hospital serves Hancock County and the surrounding areas as a full-service community hospital focused on primary care, patient comfort, and convenience.

Today, a highly skilled medical and professional nursing staff anchors Hancock Regional Hospital. We have a state-of-the-art surgery department, 24-hour emergency services, OB services, progressive and critical care, home healthcare, occupational health, an inpatient hospice care unit, a total oncology program with a cutting-edge radiation oncology center, many private rooms, and a full complement of Inpatient and outpatient services.

Hancock Health has a history of responsiveness to the needs of the people of Hancock County and the surrounding areas. Because of a progressive Board, Medical Staff, and associates; the hard work and dedication of all; and the strong support of the community; Hancock Health is able to provide a wider range of programs and services than most community-based hospitals of its size.
