Cameron History

Cameron Hospital has a long tradition of providing high-quality healthcare services to the people of Steuben County and surrounding communities. Through the years, we have helped generation after generation enjoy better health and live comfortably, as our hospital continues to serve the medical needs of our community.

 

Hospital Origins

At one time, Angola had two hospitals. The first was founded in 1926 by Dr. Don F. Cameron, while the second, known as Elmhurst, was established by Dr. Lester L. Eberhart in 1945. Eventually, in 1972, the two hospitals merged into one hospital—Cameron Memorial Community Hospital, which was located at its current site of 416 East Maumee Street in Angola, Indiana.

 

Cameron Today

Today, Cameron Hospital is a modern, thriving hospital featuring the latest technology and advanced equipment. A 25-bed critical access, not-for-profit community hospital, Cameron is focused on providing quality healthcare for Steuben County and the surrounding areas.

We are recognized as a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital, which illustrates the exceptional value Cameron provides to our community. 

Critical Access

Cameron Memorial Community Hospital has been officially recognized as a Critical Access Hospital (CAH). This means our hospital is certified to receive cost-based reimbursement from Medicare intended to improve financial performance and reduce hospital closures. The CAH designation is designed to reduce the financial vulnerability of rural hospitals and improve access to quality healthcare by keeping essential services in rural communities*. Cameron meets the necessary criteria due to our rural location, the number of beds we have and the fact that we provide 24/7 emergency care services.

The CAH status helps ensure that Cameron Hospital remains financially viable, so we can focus on fulfilling the healthcare and wellness needs of our community. The designation also grants our hospital access to the CAH network of acute care hospitals for support and expansion of services, and enables more flexible staffing and services specific to our community.
