When Caldwell was founded medical practices were less sophisticated and less effective than they have now become. Ether gave way to gas that gave way to Pentothal, and that, too, has evolved. Old timers remember tincture of violet, mercurochrome, and iodine as the disinfectant medicine for cuts and scrapes.
Now, Caldwell has a hospital complete with modern equipment, outstanding doctors and medical staff, an astute board of directors, a superb administrative staff, and a supportive community.

Tele-medicine is available for emergency consultation through St. Francis Via Christi. We currently doing oncology consults with IATV (Interactive Television). In our ongoing effort to support children, the Tele-Kid Care Program has been implemented. Our fine physician, Dr. Jim Blunk, works with the school nurse and patients. We are fortunate to be one of the few small hospitals in the country to have this program.

We think that we have prepared well to continue to progress in the 21st century and new millennium, just as we have from the first hospital in 1933 on Osage Street to the one in the 40s, 50s, and 60s on Main Street, to the one at our present location.
