Fairfield Memorial Hospital has been serving the health care needs of the surrounding area since 1950. Upon its opening, Fairfield Memorial Hospital was equipped with 84 beds and was staffed with six resident physicians and twenty-four registered nurses. On July 1, 1968, Fairfield Memorial Hospital introduced Way-Fair to the community. At its opening, Way-Fair consisted of 63 beds; today, Way-Fair Nursing & Rehabilitation Center consists of 101 beds. In 1966, Fairfield Memorial Hospital announced its expansion project, which consisted of attached offices adjoining the hospital, now known as the Mattie B. Rinard Building. In 1975, Fairfield Memorial Hospital opened its Intensive Care Unit.


In 1998, Fairfield Memorial Hospital completed a $4.1 million expansion project. This expansion included, but wasn’t limited to, a new Surgical and Emergency Department, along with expansion of the Laboratory and Imaging departments. Additionally, the entire second floor was converted to all-private rooms. In August 2008, FMH opened Horizon Healthcare, a Certified Hospital Based-Rural Health Clinic, in a temporary building until the construction of the new FMH Medical Arts Complex was complete. In May 2011, FMH opened the Medical Arts Complex, a 25,468 square foot facility, which includes Horizon Healthcare, specialist suites, board room, and community/education rooms.

Today, Fairfield Memorial Hospital is a fully accredited, not-for-profit critical access hospital. The hospital has 25 acute-care beds and a workforce of over 250 employees. The medical staff at Fairfield Memorial Hospital is comprised of over 90 credentialed physicians and healthcare providers. Fairfield Memorial Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission, which means that they voluntarily sought inspection by The Joint Commission to survey the quality of patient care, services, equipment, and facility.
