Our History

Warren Memorial Hospital (WMH) is a licensed 180-bed acute-care hospital located in Front Royal, Virginia that opened in 1951 with 48 beds.

Prior to affiliating with Valley Health in 1993, the hospital added a 29-bed unit in 1959 known as the Shenandoah Wing. In 1968, the hospital opened a 40-bed nursing home, Lynn Care Center, named in memory of Dr. William Eugene Lynn. Lynn Care moved into a new facility adjacent to the hospital in 2003 and expanded its number of beds to 120, including a 26-bed memory support unit for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Over the years, a number of extensive renovation and expansion projects have been completed, including a 40-bed wing in 1979, and a new Women’s Care Center, Emergency Department, lobby and gift shop in 1997. In 2008 it opened an outpatient facility on Commerce Avenue that includes occupational health, outpatient rehabilitation services, and physician offices.

Warren Memorial was the first hospital to affiliate with Valley Health System (formerly known as Winchester Regional Health Systems) in 1993. In addition to a variety of diagnostic, medical and surgical services, Warren Memorial Hospital offers orthopedic; obstetrics and gynecology; ear, nose and throat and around-the-clock emergency care. Thanks to Valley Health’s strong network of providers, residents have access to an array of specialty services, including cardiology, vascular surgery, pulmonology and urology without having to leave the area.
