Our Story

In 1931, Dr. Leonard N. Myers opened a small hospital in an old boarding house (on what is now Main Street) to serve the people of Cheyenne County and surrounding areas. It became St. Joseph Hospital of the Plains in 1947 when the sisters of St. Joseph Third Order of St. Francis (TSOF) from Bartlett, Illinois Province assumed ownership.
