History of the Sharon Springs Clinic

Before it became associated with Bassett Health Care, the 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.

The laboratory stayed open for many years, and in 1987 joined Bassett Healthcare. The Leland O. White building closed in 1994 when the practice outgrew the structure. Now the clinic is located on Rt. 20 in the heart of Sharon Springs. Bassett Healthcare-Sharon Springs serves all community members. It aims to give complete primary care services, as well as access to specialty care through the Bassett Healthcare Network.

This Bassett medical home practice has received national NCQA Patient Centered Medical Home recognition.
