KVH Hospital Celebrates 50th Anniversary with Open House Event


On December 29, 2014, KVH Hospital observed its 50th anniversary of caring for the community.  To commemorate the milestone event, Kittitas Valley Healthcare will host the January session of the Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Hours program.

On Thursday, January 15, KVH Hospital will welcome Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce members and the public between 5 and 7 p.m.  Participants are welcome to stop by the upstairs conference rooms of KVH Hospital any time during the open house hours.

Features of the event will include tours of the hospital, a display of nursing items from a 1991 time capsule, and a collection of current items that will fill a new time capsule. Light refreshments will be offered.

The Business After Hours event falls nearly in the middle of KVH’s 50 Years in 50 Days social media campaign. This special campaign kicked off on the 50th anniversary of KVH Hospital’s opening and features one story, photo, fun fact, or historic news article every day for 50 days. 

The community is invited to follow the 50 Years in 50 Days posts 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.
