History of KDH

The inspiration of 12 local women became a reality when Drusilla Cravens, a wealthy widow, agreed to donate the house that was used as the first hospital on Aug. 25, 1899. Since that time, King's Daughters' Health has grown into a regional healthcare facility, serving families from more than five counties. Formerly located in historic downtown Madison, KDH opened its new, hilltop campus in early 2013. Throughout this time, our mission has remained the same.
