The Good Ol' Days: The Beginning of the Eufaula Municipal Hospital

In 1975, during the construction of the Eufaula Municipal Hospital, one of the first contributions was made by the friendly Lake Eufaula area supporters. Here, Betty Price is presenting a check to me. I was appointed the Hospital Board Chairman. Looking on is Debby Burns, Eufaula’s first EMS tech. The hospital was constructed, completed, and owned by the city. It stayed that way for over ten years. In 1985, it was sold to private enterprise. The hospital is still in operation on the hill. Every room has a view of the lake.
