Bedford Community Partners


In the early 1980s, the hospital merged with the Roanoke Hospital Association and by 1987, another renovation and expansion project was completed. In 1996, under a new branding strategy and guideline, the hospital was renamed Bedford Memorial Hospital to reflect its partnership with Carilion Health System in Roanoke. Two years later, Carilion appropriated funds to expand services and improve technology. The initiative resulted in renovations of the hospital lobby, expansion of the Emergency Department and completion of a two-story medical office building, which now serves as the main entrance of the hospital.

Carilion Clinic and Centra Health signed a formal letter of agreement on July 9, 2001, to jointly own and operate Bedford Memorial Hospital.
