Throughout its history, ownership of CGH has changed to reflect the needs and demands of the ever changing healthcare environment. The first hospital was located in a two-story house until 1935 when Dr. E.W. Jones built a new hospital next door. After several years, Dr. Jones found it difficult to maintain the operations of the hospital and in March 1938 transferred ownership to the Community of Sisters. Shortly after, four Sisters set out for the unknown territory of the Texas Panhandle and were welcomed with open arms by the doctors and their families.
