Founded for mothers, by a mother
AnMed has a long history of looking after expectant mothers. In 1908, the hospital was founded by a woman named Jennie Gilmer who was committed to protecting the health of women and babies.
Thank you, AnMed, for your great care! My nurses truly went above and beyond for me!
I had an amazing experience with everyone that worked with me! Everyone was very professional and extremely kind and helpful.
Everyone we came in contact with was so nice and respectful. By far the best hospital experience we had to date.
