Hunter Adams is a social activist and physician who ran a free clinic dubbed the "Gesundheit Institute" in a 6-bedroom house.
He intended for over 30 years to build a hospital in West Virginia.
A comedy film, Patch Adams, was based loosely on some episodes in his life.
- "I felt confident that a free hospital to serve the poorest state, West Virginia, would find easy funding and that we would be built in four years. I smile writing this as we enter our 33rd year without having broken ground on the hospital." (The Gesundheit! Hospital Project)
