A Proud Tradition

William Newton Hospital has been a respected healthcare provider since its doors opened on February 25, 1927. WNH is classified as a not-for-profit community general hospital. It remains locally managed and completely self-sufficient, receiving no tax support. The hospital is governed by a five-member Board of Trustees appointed by the Winfield City Commission.

WNH was made possible through the generosity of William Newton who, upon his death in 1923, left considerable assets to the city of Winfield for the construction of a hospital. Newton was a local business owner and harness maker who slowly accumulated wealth from investments and oil on his properties.

Throughout its history, the hospital has been a proactive force in providing healthcare for the area. Meeting the healthcare needs of the citizens in the surrounding area has always been, and always will be, our number one priority.
