The Caldwell Hospital has served thousands of Caldwell residents and surrounding communities since the early 1920s. At the time it was located on south Osage. The hospital then expanded and moved to the old Southwestern Hotel on Mainstreet in 1930, where it remained until the Sumner County Hospital District was established and the hospital relocated to its newly constructed (current facility) in 1965. Today the hospital is constructing a state-of-the-art building just east of Caldwell that is expected to open after the first of the year.
The hospital is the largest employer in Caldwell and one of the largest employers in Sumner County with nearly 80 employees. The hospital provides various inpatient and outpatient services, as well as emergency services. Pulmonary Rehab and Primary Care are the most recent services added.
