About Us

Caring Hands. Remarkable Minds.

Butler Health System (BHS), now a part of Independence Health System, puts the emphasis on quality healthcare provided at an affordable price for residents of Butler, Clarion, and surrounding areas. We seek to ensure excellence throughout the patient experience and to maintain outstanding clinical outcomes. Our goal is to provide each and every patient with exceptional care.

Over a Century of Excellence in Pennsylvania Healthcare

The flagship of our health system, Butler Memorial Hospital was founded in 1898. Since that time, we have remained an organization that emphasizes growth and excellence in comprehensive care for patients in our region of service. Today, BHS employs more than 2,000 professionals throughout the area. For over a century, our commitment to the most elite level of patient care centered on the well-being of those we serve has remained the focal point and defining descriptor of our health organization.

Clarion Hospital was established in 1954 by five physicians who had a vision of providing short term healthcare for the citizens of Clarion County. Located off of I-80 at exit 62 in the forest covered mountains of the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors, Clarion Hospital offers health care throughout the course of a lifetime. Clarion Hospital is a modern, 67-bed facility dedicated to providing quality care to our community with services ranging from inpatient, outpatient and emergency services.
