Old Rodger's Hospital in Searcy AR. A view from the past.

Rodgers hospital

This photo of the old Rodgers Hospital on Woodruff Street in Searcy AR was taken by my friend Paula when she was doing a project for 4H as a youngster.   Look at the age of the cars!  It was owned by Porter Rodgers, Sr., a physician who was loved in the city.  I made a trip to the hospital late in the evening once because I had a daughter who was ill.  Dr. Rodgers was there and took care of her.  I guess he was making his rounds because surely he didn't get out in the packed snow just to see her.  We were having a rare snowstorm.  But according to his reputation, he probably would have done so.

This hospital closed down when a new one was built.

Whit, tell your best friend that if he hears strange sounds in the night they may be friendly ghosts from the old hospital.  LOL
