Q: What is the history of the hospital?

The hospital has been in operation at this site since the early 1960s. The hospital originally opened as a 150-bed facility. It expanded significantly during the 1970s with an increase in capacity to 518 beds. During the 1970s, approvals were granted for a nursing center, a new public health center, parking lot extensions, and the construction of a permanent parking lot on the east side of Howard Street. This expansion nearly tripled the size of the facility with the construction of a 295,646 sq. ft. addition on the southern portion of the original building. In the 1980s, the hospital constructed a helipad, patient services center, cancer center, surgical center, and numerous other additions to the main facility. In the 1990s, changes to the hospital included an expansion of the emergency department, construction of a new sign area, and enclosure of a connection bridge within the facility.
