Caleb Cooley Dickinson of Hatfield left $100,000 in his will to the city of Northampton, Massachusetts. That sum was to be used for a hospital to treat the sick poor who were not chronically ill, but needed nursing and care. Patients were to be charged a moderate rate or nothing at all depending on their financial situation. Opened to the public in 1886, it has continuously grown and developed and is still the only hospital in Hampshire County.
