Our hospital's history
For more than 40 years, we've been committed to improving the well-being of our community by providing the best healthcare possible.
Decades of change and growth
In the 1950s, two hospitals served our region — Alleghany Memorial and the C&O Hospital, which was started by C&O Railroad.
By 1976, the community recognized the need to merge the two hospitals and formed The Alleghany Regional Hospital Corporation. Groundbreaking for our facility, Alleghany Regional Hospital, began in 1977. Two years later, we opened with 204 beds at our current location in Low Moor.
Part of the HCA Healthcare family of hospitals
Changes came to Alleghany Regional in 1993 with a 30,700-square-foot expansion and the renovation of outpatient service areas. In 1995, Nashville-based HCA Healthcare purchased the hospital. Proceeds from that sale were used to establish the Alleghany Foundation. With current assets of more than $60 million, the Foundation has funneled grants totaling more than $20 million back into the community.
At the turn of the 21st century, additional changes to the hospital name came with the new ownership — from Alleghany Regional Hospital to LewisGale Hospital Alleghany. Today, we are the second-largest private employer in Alleghany County and HCA Healthcare is the fourth-largest private employer in Virginia.
