St. Vincent Memorial Hospital was established in 1906 by the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, Ruma, Illinois province. The original building accommodated 20 patients when it opened its doors. As the community needs grew, the hospital expanded, and the current facility was completed in 1954. A second floor was converted into a Transitional (skilled) Care Unit in 1985, and 10 years later, a new rehabilitation services department, specialty physicians’ clinic, larger emergency department, and new front entrance and lobby were completed.
Memorial Health System became a co-sponsor of St. Vincent Memorial Hospital in Taylorville in 1995, and the sole sponsor in 2007, when the hospital was renamed Taylorville Memorial Hospital.
