Proven Medical Care in Grant County
In healthcare, awards are given to hospitals and clinics as proof of the
high quality of care that can be found there. At Marion General Hospital,
we are immensely proud of the numerous awards and accreditations our rural
hospital has received over the years. Though we are a rural hospital,
we have received acclaim on both local and national levels for our outstanding
services, excellent patient outcomes, and the compassionate, dedicated
care provided by our staff.
Below are just a few of the awards we have been honored to receive:

To curb this statistic, MGH has bolstered its efforts to stub out smoking.
