Welcome to Laird Hospital
Laird Hospital is a 25-bed acute-care hospital that provides a wide range of inpatient, outpatient and emergency services. Patients can be admitted to the hospital if their medical needs make that the best option. A variety of other services are available on an inpatient and outpatient basis through the hospital’s imaging, laboratory and rehabilitative services, including physical, occupational and speech therapy.
Patients are cared for under the direction of their physician by a licensed health care team including registered nurses, physical therapists, social workers, dietitians, pharmacists and other ancillary staff, depending on the patient’s medical needs.
A 24-hour emergency department is staffed with qualified emergency room hospitalists and family nurse practitioners and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The hospitalists also act as hospital physicians, which means they can admit and care for patients who do not have a physician that regularly admits patients at the hospital.
Skilled nursing and rehabilitative care are available at Laird Hospital through the Swing Bed Program.Those recovering from surgery, a stroke, a fracture or an extended medical illness and hospitalization can choose to rehabilitate at Laird Hospital, whether or not they were hospitalized in another location.
Laird Hospital has a rich heritage as a hospital built by the community for the community. Founded on the vision of Dr. Earl Laird, Sr., the hospital believes in providing compassionate health care services that reach out to those living in Union and the surrounding area.
Since the hospital opened its doors, growth has been a major focus for the Laird's commitment to you and your family. Today, we share the same vision that Dr. Earl Laird, Sr., instituted–to provide a tradition of caring throughout the community for years to come.
At Laird, we are serious about having the right people and technology on duty and on call when you or your family require medical attention. We believe that patient care comes before anything else.
