Hickman County Hospital was established in 1964 through a 17-acre land donation by the Huddleston family of Centerville, Tennessee, and Federal Hill-Burton Funds.
The hospital's mission is to provide quality primary and emergency care to the community in a professional, accessible and compassionate manner.
Over its history, Hickman Community Hospital has expanded its services to include a local home health program and become the first hospital in Tennessee to qualify as a Critical Access Hospital. In 1996, Baptist Hospital purchased the hospital. In January of 2002, Hickman Community Hospital became a member of Saint Thomas Health and Ascension Health.
The hospital is now known as Saint Thomas Hickman Hospital.
