term skilled (swing bed) care for its patients.

Goodall-Witcher offers digital mammography, multi-slice CT scanning, Nuclear Medicine stress testing, MRI, vascular ultrasound, Fluoroscopy with two x-ray imaging rooms as well as portable x-ray.
Despite this advanced, up-to-date technology, the Goodall-Witcher Hospital Authority manages to maintain a friendly, small-town atmosphere for its valuable patients. The hospital employs mostly residents of Clifton and the surrounding areas, meaning that the patients are being treated by a staff that knows them personally and cares for them. This casual feel makes a patient's care seem more personal and less formal than the typical big-city hospital, and residents of Bosque and surrounding counties can feel at home at Goodall-Witcher.
To borrow a phrase from the Clifton Chamber of Commerce, “It’s a Great Life . . . When You Live It in Clifton!” Located in south central Bosque County at the north end of the beautiful Texas hill country, Clifton is unabashedly described as a fantastic place for families. While the opportunity to raise a family in a value-rich setting of growth, prosperity, excellent schools, and a pleasant way of life keeps many of us here, Clifton’s low crime rate, excellent health care facilities, beautiful parks and playgrounds make it a place to “just kick back” and enjoy the place and the people who live here. Newcomers are enthusiastically welcomed to make themselves part of a vibrant rural community that's been blessed with a rich cultural heritage.
Called “a jewel in the rough” by the Texas Historical Commission, the City of Clifton is a great community. Strengths and assets include the people, the multicultural heritage, the natural beauty of the area, the great location, the Bosque River, a progressive atmosphere, churches, a hospital and clinic and other health care service providers, a strong school district, and many active service organizations.
