Attend our 50-year celebration open house Monday, November 9, from 4-8 pm.

New Beginnings
Opening of hospital ceremony When Drs. Charles McClelland and Gordon Sprague, the original owners, decided that the community should own the hospital, they donated Paris Community Hospital to form a foundation. Thus, The Hospital & Medical Foundation of Paris (HMFP) was founded on December 30, 1958.

Ground is broken for the current Paris Community Hospital because of a successful $1 million capital fund drive.

The hospital officially opens its doors on November 9.

PCHFMC purchases The Medical Center Clinic from Drs. James Acklin, Duane Haskell, and Leland Phipps.

The hospital also purchases the practice of Dr. Jeffry Hatcher, creating Chrisman Family Medical Center.

HMFP completes a hospital expansion project to construct the Family Medical Center. The combined organization becomes Paris Community Hospital/Family Medical Center.
