The Pioneering Doctors - History

The year 1948 saw Dr. Joseph M. Blackerby, a Virginia native, open the area’s first medical practice. He was followed in 1851 by Dr. Albert G. Hutton and Dr. Benjamin Davenport, the grandfather of Homer Davenport, and in 1852 by Dr. Platt A. Davis. These four pioneer physicians were to provide medical coverage for the Silverton Country for many years.

The earliest known public interest in a hospital for Silverton was recorded in the Silvertonian Appeal on April 1, 1910. Under a banner, “Scandinavian People Will Erect Institution Which Will Be a Credit to all Oregon,” the article reported a proposition by members of the “Scandinavian Lutheran churches” to build a non-denominational hospital to serve the community.
