Paris Community Hospital began as a small, privately owned hospital located on the corner of East Crawford and Shaw Street in Paris, Illinois.

New Beginnings

When Drs. Charles McClelland and Gordon Sprague, the original owners, decided that the community should own the hospital, they donated Paris Community Hospital to form a foundation. Thus, The Hospital & Medical Foundation of Paris (HMFP) was founded on December 30, 1958.
