Dr. Leo A. Cronan was instrumental in developing the original medical library at Sutter Davis Hospital. Upon his death in 1986, Mrs. Cronan requested that the Cronan Memorial Fund be established to maintain the library. The response was overwhelming from Dr. Cronan's friends, family, patients and colleagues. In 2008 Mrs. Leo A. Cronan left a bequest to upgrade the Cronan Medical Library.
Vaughn Resource Center
Dr. Thomas Vaughn was a popular local physician dedicated to preventive health and education for his patients. Upon his death in 1986, family and community members erected an educational display in his memory. That display has grown into what is now the Vaughn Resource Center. Portraits of Drs. Vaughn and Cronan occupy one wall of the Resource Center/Medical Library. Patients, their families, and community members are welcome to call or visit the resource center and a volunteer will assist them.
