As a rural 92 bed licensed, nonprofit acute care hospital we are proud to share our progress with the Darke County community. Our success is a result of the continued support of the community in which we live and the dedication of nearly 500 employees, doctors and volunteers at Wayne HealthCare. We look forward to continuing the services we offer, while collaborating with other health care organizations to bring new services to our community.
