Rawlins County Health Center – History
Rawlins County Health Center History
Rawlins County Hospital began as an idea that originated in the Atwood Rotary Club through the untiring efforts of Dr. C.E. Henneberger, M.D. The facility opened in 1950 as Rawlins County Hospital. The hospital was leased to and operated by the Sisters of St. Joseph until 1969 when Rawlins County Hospital, Inc., a private, non-profit corporation was formed for the purpose of leasing and operating the hospital.
