Inscription. This building, now a residence, was Canadian's first hospital, opened on June 16, 1917. Funds for construction were obtained by public subscription. Dr. H. C. Caylor, first owner, sold to Dr. L. V. Dawson in 1920. From 1924 to 1949, Dr. E. H. Morris was owner.

A tornado that killed or hurt some 200 to 260 people in the Glazier-Higgins area (10 to 27 mi. NE) on April 9, 1947, dramatized worth of this hospital — the only one in the immediate vicinity. It was closed in 1949.
