Adams County Hospital (ACH) originated in November 1948 through the support of 85% of the voters for a $250,000 Bond Issue. Thereafter, the Governor appointed a Board of County Hospital Trustees to oversee the planning of a new and innovative hospital: R. L. Lawwill, M.D., Seaman; Robert B. Ellison, M.D., Peebles; Harold Seaman, West Union; and P. Bennie Colletti, Manchester.
At the first Board of Trustees meeting in December 1948, Dr. Lawwill was elected Chairman of the Board. By March 1949, Adams County Hospital’s name was created, and the decision to begin construction of the 26-bed general hospital, ACH, on the site adjacent to the county Children’s Home was determined. Thirty more beds were added in 1955 to continue the expansion of the hospital, followed by 32 more in 1966. The total was then 90 beds.
There was an outpouring of support from the beloved community. Visitors brought canned goods and other commodities to help stock the hospital kitchen. The first patient was admitted to Adams County Hospital on Wednesday, September 3, 1952. The first Active Medical Staff consisted of Drs. Sam Clark, S. J. Ellison, Robert B. Ellison, Sam Gendlemen, S. B. Sonkin, Hazel L. Sproull, Robert Lawwill, Richard C. Wenrick, and W. T. LaNeave. Earle Wilks served as the first Administrator.
