Our Hospital Story - How We Began - 1/29/2014

in Hillsboro. In 1911, a general hospital was planned, and was to be owned by a stock company (the Highland County Hospital Company). Shares were sold at $50 each. The shares went rapidly (mainly purchased by physicians) and in May 1911, directors were elected and it was decided to call the hospital the Hillsboro and Highland Hospital Company.

A committee was picked to look for a site for the future hospital. There had been controversy as to the proper location of the hospital. Some thought it should be uptown. However, the committee found a site just off E. Main Street, on Key Street, which they all thought would be "very fine since it was out where it would be quiet, a more suitable place for those suffering from nervous trouble and incurable diseases."

By February of 2012, it came to the attention of the stock holders that the Bowers home was for sale. This was thought to be even better than the other site which had been chosen. On February 22, 1912, the Bowers home was purchased by the stock company.

Perfect Score for Digital Mammography Accreditation - 9/16/2013

 as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Mammography is a specific type of imaging test that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.
The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services. To schedule a digital mammogram, please contact the Imaging Center at 937.393.MAMMO. If you cannot afford a mammogram, you may qualify for one at no cost through the Komen Foundation. For details, call 937.840.6512.
