Before it became associated with Bassett Healthcare Network, the health clinic in this small rural town was known as the Leland O. White Laboratory.
The plan for a laboratory had originated in 1950, when members of the Sharon Springs Rotary Club decided to donate money in honor of Dr. White's 50th anniversary serving rural community residents. The building opened its doors in 1953, when it was decided that the members of the community needed a health center so that they did not have to travel for x-rays and diagnostic laboratory tests.
Dr. White could now make a precise diagnosis without persuading his patients to go to the city. He no longer needed to mail samples to other laboratories and wait for the results.
