About Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center
Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center is a 25-bed critical access hospital, located in Elgin, North Dakota, with a 24/7 emergency room.
Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center opened in 1977, supported by a dedicated community which built the new medical facility to replace an outdated Lorenzen Memorial Hospital, which had operated since the 1940s. The new hospital was named to honor Dr. M.S. Jacobson for his dedication and support of health care in the area.
The Elgin Community Clinic, attached to the hospital, opened in 1986. In 2006, Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center added a satellite clinic in Glen Ullin.
The hospital is a nonprofit corporation overseen by a board of directors, elected by a vote of hospital shareholders.
Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center is located just west of Highway 49 on the east edge of Elgin, North Dakota. The hospital entrance is on the west side of the hospital, while the clinic entrance is located in the lower parking lot on the east side of the hospital.
