The Salem Hospital was founded in 1873, by Capt. John Bertram. One of the first Salem hospitals was a large brick building, 31 Charter Street, formerly a private residence, the birthplace of the late Hon. Stephen H. Phillips, attorney-general of Massachusetts and of Hawaii.

Damaged in the fire of 1914, the building was torn down during Salem's period of urban renewal in the 1970's.

The present hospital on Highland Ave. was erected in 1916-17, largely as a replacement for the Charter Street building burned in the Salem fire of 1914.
