Remembering Dr. Baird

Dr. Keith Baird, former volunteer physician at Christian Nursing Service, family physician in Crawfordsville, Wabash College alumnus, emeritus member of the Montgomery County Free Clinic, Inc. Board, former Wabash College physician and graduate of Wabash College died this morning (3/29/2014). Dr. Baird truly made a difference.

In 2009, Dr. Baird talked about his service to Christian Nursing Service and the opportunity to start a clinic for the uninsured.  This is an edited clip of his comments. In the clip, Dr. Baird begins by talking about the possibility of a new clinic that incorporates CNS. He refers to St. Claire, the former name of Franciscan Alliance St. Elizabeth – Crawfordsville. Chris Amidon, then President of CNS, comments on his contributions. In the end, someone suggests that Dr. Baird be named oracle of MCFreeClinic and we hear Dr. Baird’s famous laugh. We will miss him.

  1. That was Dr. Roberts chiming in at the end, suggesting the title of "Oracle." What a great memory–so glad that was recorded so we can hear Dr. Baird's booming voice once again.
