The first patients were accepted at KVH Hospital on December 29, 1964. Now, 50 years later, Kittitas Valley Healthcare is celebrating a milestone of caring for the community by releasing one story, photo, fun fact, or historic news article every day for 50 days.
January 22 marks the halfway point of the 50 day span.
Highlights of the first 25 days include stories with retired physician Dr. Jim Powell, retired nursing director Mevla Schmidt, a mother and son duo who both work at Kittitas Valley Healthcare, and one of the first patients to be seen at the new hospital.
The community is invited to follow the remaining 25 items by connecting with KVH on social media (Twitter, Facebook or Linked In) or viewing the KVH website at www.kvhealthcare.org/50-years-50-days.
