A dedication in honor and memory of Dr. Charles Clark, M.D., was held at the Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House on Thursday, August 24 at 3 pm. Friends, family, and community members attended.

Dr. Charles Clark was born in Calloway County and after completing medical school at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, he began his practice in 1951. In 1980, he became the first hospice medical director at Murray-Calloway County Hospital and continued in this role throughout his medical career. He retired in 1992 due to health problems and passed away on October 18, 1992, at the age of 69.

During his memorial, a portrait painted by artist Joy Thomas was presented to the hospital. A copy of the original will took its place in the Charles D. Clark, M.D., Memorial Library on the day of the dedication.

Dr. Clark’s legacy continued with his son Dr. Hollis Clark who continued in his father’s footsteps as an Internal Medicine physician. He also served as the hospice director for approximately10 years, has been a member of the medical staff at Murray-Calloway County Hospital for many years, and currently practices at Primary Care Medical Center.
