Since 1893, Lancaster General Health (LG Health) has been meeting the healthcare needs of our community. The timeline below puts our growth from a hospital located in a three-story house on Queen Street in Lancaster City to a regional healthcare organization with locations throughout Lancaster County, in historical context. Timeline of Historical Highlights by Decade 1890-1910 Surgery is now common, especially for removing tumors, infected tonsils, appendectomies and gynecological operations. The American Medical Association becomes a powerful force. Progressive reformers argue for health insurance. Toward the end of the decade, American hospitals become modern scientific institutions, valuing antiseptics and cleanliness, and using medications for the relief of pain.
