Carl E. Everett Education and Administration Building reception held July 15

July 25, 2011

A reception honoring Carl Everett, DO, was held July 15 at the UNT Health Science Center. Everett was instrumental in founding and building the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Education and Administration Building has been named after him.

Everett was born in 1914 in Mountain View, Ark. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oklahoma and a Doctor of Osteopathy degree from the Kansas City College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1939. He remained in Missouri for the next decade practicing general medicine.

Everett’s friendship with Roy Fisher, founder of the Fort Worth Osteopathic Hospital, brought him and his young family to Fort Worth in 1949.

In addition to his long association with the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, Everett served a long term on the board of directors of the Osteopathic Medical Center of Texas and a year as chief of staff.

"Carl was always instrumental at bringing people together," recalled Tim Sullivan, son of Everett’s longtime business partner, Dorothy Sullivan, whom Everett had first met when she was an administrator of the FWOH on Montgomery Street. Together they built and managed a series of nursing homes across North Texas. Most, innovatively, featured a clinic staffed daily and used for the care of both the home’s residents and employees. At their Western Hills Nursing Home in Fort Worth, Everett and Sullivan partnered with three DOs and three MDs and opened it for TCOM students to use for their geriatric rotations. He added the MDs in part so that osteopathic students could gain experience working with MDs as colleagues, something he felt would be increasingly common over their careers.
