The hospital opened its doors on January 13, 1896 to admit it’s first patient, a 65-year-old sewing-machine salesman. At that time the hospital consisted of a donated building with 5 beds, two nurses, a superintendent, and a medical student who served as the house physician and janitor! Much has changed over the years. Now this JCAHO certified hospital has almost 400 beds and employs over 700 nurses. There are almost 18,000 admissions per year, almost 65,000 emergency room visits, and about 2,800 new babies are welcomed to the world at this quality facility! The hospital has graduated to bigger and better facilities to accommodate it’s growth and has recently broken ground on a brand new 21st century hospital to meet it’s changing needs now and in the future. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2009.
