Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital, named to honor and memorialize residents who served in World War I has been located on the northern edge of the village since 1924. Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital operates a 25-bed general acute care hospital, with a medical-telemetry unit, an additional 10-bed in-patient psychiatric unit. Soldiers & Sailors also has a Swing Bed Program.

The Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital in-patient behavioral health unit addresses each patient's unique needs and differing life situation using a multidisciplinary treatment team approach. The inpatient unit consists of quiet areas for individual and group therapy sessions, lounge areas, recreational activity room, dining area, laundry facilities, and kitchen area.

Swing Beds are utilized to provide patients with care following an acute care hospitalization, when the patient needs more time to recover from a surgery, after joint repair or replacement, after a prolonged hospitalization due to an injury or illness, when IV antibiotic therapy is needed or other reasons. If a patient has had three overnights in an acute care bed at any facility, not just at Soldiers & Sailors, and has an ongoing diagnosis and needs that require skilled care, as defined by Medicare, he or she may be a candidate for a Swing Bed.
