History

The organization was formed in 1997 by the merger of two pre-existing hospitals in Lincoln: Bryan Memorial Hospital and Lincoln General Hospital.[1] The name BryanLGH was chosen to reflect the names of the pre-existing hospitals, both of which had been in operation since 1926.[2] The college has been around since 1926. It started off as a diploma school for nursing. The physician network and heart institute have been added since the merger.

The system also operates Crete Area Medical Center, a full-service rural health clinic.
