Dosher Memorial Marks 90th Anniversary

By Staff Reports, posted Jul 3, 2020
Dosher Memorial Hospital in Southport recently commemorated its 90th anniversary.
The critical access community hospital opened June 2, 1930. Originally called Brunswick County Hospital, it was later renamed for physician and hospital founder J. Arthur Dosher.
Today licensed for 25 acute care beds, the hospital treats patients in the Southport/Smithville Township area.
Because of coronavirus restrictions, the event last month marking the anniversary was limited, with some guests meeting at the hospital’s lobby and the program streamed on Dosher Memorial’s Facebook page.
“While we commemorate 90 years of trusted hometown healthcare, we also understand that this is not a day of business as usual on so many levels,” hospital and foundation president Lynda Stanley said in the release. “I have faith that during these turbulent times, we can survive. We have for 90 years, and as a community, we will move on. Let us stand together and meet the challenges head on.”
