Ashland Hospital on West Main

Ashland Hospital and Healing Home was located on West Main Street probably in the late 1800’s.

ASHLAND -- If asked, most people with some knowledge of local Ashland history would probably answer that Center Street is the first and only location of a hospital in Ashland. Actually, that isn’t the case.

The first hospital in Ashland was located on West Main Street, probably in the area of today’s county office building. The Ashland Hospital and Healing Home, as it was called, was operated and managed by Dr. Elmore J. Worst.
