MRMC Kicks Off 75th Year of Service

1/1/2014

Magnolia Regional Medical Center is looking forward to celebrating 75 years of service in 2014.  The hospital, originally named Magnolia City Hospital, opened its doors in 1939 as a small inpatient hospital.  As health care progressed throughout the years the hospital continued to add services and equipment.

In 2010 the hospital changed its name to Magnolia Regional Medical Center and made the move into the new state-of-the-art facility that serves Magnolia and surrounding communities today.

"It is such an exciting time in health care and we are looking forward to celebrating this milestone anniversary," stated Margaret West, CEO.

In honor of the 75th anniversary, a new logo will be used throughout the facility and in advertising during 2014.  The logo was designed by Bekah Kee of Magnolia.

The 75th anniversary celebration begins with the Foundation Gala this Saturday night.  The celebration will conclude with party-type ceremony in December.

"We have searched archived documents and from what we found it appears that the doors opened on December 5, 1939," stated Karen Weido, Marketing Director. "We will hold community events throughout the year to celebrate, but will plan a big celebration in December."

Throughout the year MRMC will also use #MRMC75 to highlight events and stories. The community is encouraged to share their memories and stories using the hashtag as well.
