Our History

The history of Archbold Medical Center begins with its anchor facility, John D. Archbold Memorial Hospital. The hospital was given as a gift to the Thomasville and south Georgia/north Florida community by John F. Archbold in memory of his father, John D. (Dustin) Archbold.

Through the great foresight of John F. Archbold, and through past and present members of the Board of Trustees, medical staff and administration, progressive decisions have been made allowing the original structure to be expanded in all directions.

These facility updates, along with early adoption of advanced technologies and recruitment of outstanding physicians have helped the organization remain a regional healthcare leader.
