The Palo Pinto General Hospital District came into being April 20, 1965. This was the culmination of many months of work following a request by the Sisters who operated the Nazareth Hospital in Mineral Wells. The Order felt they could no longer maintain the Nazareth Hospital due to decreased personnel and the need for modernization.
The Palo Pinto General Hospital Auxiliary was formed by a group who had been Auxilians at the Nazareth Hospital. By-Laws were adopted and signed by ten Charter Members on February 8, 1968. These members were – Msds. William O’Quin, O.B. Lance, J.F. Bailey, A.W. Dennis, Byron Greene, B.L. Miller, T.L. Sullens, Wayne Schwalm, John Westbury, and Sam Hawes.
The new hospital was completed and a day for public viewing was held July 26, 1970. The Auxilians acted as hosts. Over 7,000 area residents attended the open house. Moving day for equipment and patients was August 1, 1970.
Since the early beginnings of the Auxiliary with ten members, it now has approximately 20 active Auxilians and serves PPGH in many different areas both inside and outside of the hospital.
