History of UH Bedford
UH Bedford Medical Center started as four beds on the second floor of a private home in Bedford in 1908. Since then, UH Bedford has continued to grow to keep up with the expanding population and demand for high-quality, accessible medical care.
In 1926, bond monies were used to procure land and build the Bedford Municipal Hospital which officially opened in 1928. Additional expansions were added in 1956 and 1971, and in 1979 the official name was changed to The Community Hospital of Bedford. By 1984, following more expansion and renovation, the hospital achieved a capacity of 110 beds. The Community Hospital of Bedford was purchased in 1993 by University Hospitals.
