Salem Community Hospital turned 100 years old on Friday.
The hospital celebrated its anniversary with a Founders’ Day Breakfast at the Salem Community Center.
Former Ohio State and Salem Football Coach Earle Bruce was the featured speaker.
Hospital employees wore tee-shirts commemorating the day.
Last week, Salem Community Hospital had community members sign a birthday card and kids left their handprints.
The card will be put into a time capsule.
It was also a chance for attendees to meet interim President and CEO Doctor Anita Hackstedde.
“We have a lot of exciting things coming down the road for Salem Community Hospital,” said Dr. Anita Hackstedde. “We look forward to opening our patient bed tower in early 2014, offering private rooms for our patients and continuing to expand and advance our medical technologies.”
