Another Tale of Takoma

Adventist Doctors Daniel and Lauretta Kress

by Diana Kohn

The Seventh-day Adventists brought medical care to countries across the globe as part of their early missionary outreach. Takoma Park is home to one of those hospitals, which opened in 1907 on the banks of Sligo Creek, offering a unique brand of health care. Two of the pioneers behind both these efforts were the husband-and-wife doctors Daniel and Lauretta Kress. Of their 43 years as doctors and medical missionaries, 26 years were spent in Takoma Park.

Read the full story of how they became Adventists and their work as medical evangelists and doctors both abroad and in Takoma Park
