Delivered Nearly 10,000 Babies in County

Caring, honest, incredible, compassionate, wonderful, hardworking and loved, when asked to describe Dr. E. R. Apple in one word this is what the community had to say.

Dr. Eddie R. Apple passed away at his residence on Monday, July 14, at the age of 82.

Apple was a well known physician, not just in our county, but throughout southern Indiana. Apple delivered over 9,000 babies throughout his career at Washington County Memorial Hospital and more in neighboring hospitals.

One thing that stood out about Apple as a doctor, was he really knew his patients. You were not just a person, you were his friend and he took care of you.

A few years back Dr. Apple told of his first “surgery” as a youngster. He performed surgery on a chicken who had a lump in its throat. He made up his mind of becoming a physician early in life.
