At Graham Hospital, we have a proud and rich history of serving the healthcare needs of Canton and the surrounding communities. In 1909, the original structure of the hospital was given as a gift to the community by Alice and Caroline Graham. Since then, the hospital has grown to be the progressive, comprehensive medical facility it is today.
The generosity and strength of our community has always been a defining force in the growth and direction of Graham Hospital. Volunteer organizations provide unparalleled support through hours of service and monetary efforts. The hospital is indebted to the Fulton County area for their supportive efforts on our behalf . . . it is their adoption of the hospital that enables us to uphold their example of care and service.
The current and future professional nurse staffing needs of Graham Hospital are met by its School of Nursing. Since 1909, the School of Nursing has grown to become one of the most respected nursing institutions in Illinois. We have been recognized for excellence in our education programs and our students' passage rate of the R.N. license examination. The school is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and approved by the State of Illinois.
