Birthday of UNC Hospitals

Yesterday was the 58th birthday of UNC Hospitals. N.C. Memorial Hospital saw its first patients on Sept. 2, 1952, a historic day.

I think many of us have gotten used to the sight of construction equipment and orange barricades around the UNC Hospitals campus, and we often do not get an opportunity to reflect on what they mean. In the past 58 years, our campus has gone from one hospital to five the N.C. Cancer Hospital, N.C. Children's Hospital, N.C. Neurosciences Hospital and N.C. Women's Hospital with affiliated clinics, educational facilities and physicians across the state.

I am grateful for the opportunities our organization has had to expand our capabilities to provide care, and am proud of our continued work to provide the people of North Carolina with the best care possible.

To many more birthdays¦
