The history of Skiff (Part II)

It was a beautiful spring day in May 1921 when Mary Frances Skiff Memorial Hospital was dedicated.  The hospital had already been hailed in a national health-care journal as “one of the finest and most modern in the country.”  In keeping with this reputation, the hospital board made additional investments in the facility, including the purchase of an X-ray machine in early 1925, making Skiff one of the first small hospitals in Iowa to have this technology.  All seemed well at the time, but a problem was brewing just beneath the surface.
