King’s Daughters’ Health was formed through the inspiration of 12 local women who agreed to donate the house that was used as the first hospital on August 25, 1899. Since that time, King’s Daughters’ Health has grown into a regional healthcare facility, serving families from more than five counties in two states. Formerly located in historic downtown Madison, KDH opened its new hilltop campus in early 2013.
