In 1962, Gloria and Robert Drummond’s children, Debbie and James Randall, were tragically poisoned and died before reaching medical attention 30 minutes away. The small community rallied to build a hospital “of its own” to ensure that area residents would have access to quality healthcare and life-saving emergency care when they needed it the most. Eighteen passionate and dedicated women joined with Gloria, who led the effort to raise funds, and formed the Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League. From bake sales and fiestas to a black-tie Ball, the community raised the funds to build a Hospital that would develop into a nationally ranked medical center.
