Dark Corners of the Galaxy
Caduceus Galactic is the largest health organization in the known galaxy. As far as anyone can tell they were around at least as far back as the Old Republic and it is widely believed they were founded shortly after the advent of hyperdrive as diseases from all over the galaxy began to make their way to planets and populations creating epidemics not seen in hundreds of years.
Caduceus Galactic is said to have been established by a coalition of Jedi Healers and doctors who went around to plague ridden planets and combined their Force powers and knowledge saving entire races that would have very likely died off without their intervention.
Over the years Caduceus has weathered the transitions between the Old Republic, the Empire, and the New Republic by staying neutral throughout the wars. Caduceus has lent their aid to any government or system in need whenever the threat of biological hazards have reared their ugly head.
