Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital is celebrating 60 years of serving Arlington and the surrounding communities.

The hospital at 800 W. Randol Mill Road opened in 1958. Dwight Eisenhower was president and Elvis Presley was King. A gallon of gas was 25 cents and the median cost for a home in Texas was $35,200. But for the people of Arlington, 1958 marked the opening of Arlington Memorial Hospital.

This community celebrated the opening of the hospital, which was made possible by three years of community fundraising and a generous donation of land from the Vandergriff family. People flocked to the hospital immediately, with 17 babies born in the first week. Patients were treated for everything from pneumonia to appendicitis.

And for the last 60 years, Texas Health Arlington Memorial has continued to partner with the Arlington community for a lifetime of health and well-being. Arlington Memorial Hospital, now named Texas Health Arlington Memorial, has a rich legacy in this community. Congratulations on this milestone!
