On February 20, 1914, The Peoples Hospital was born as a hospital “not just for doctors, but for the people of Akron” decreed F.A. Seiberling, the founder and first president of the Board of Directors. Today this creed still permeates all that we do as the Akron General Health System, and in 2014 our Centennial celebrations will culminate with a Gala honoring a century-long tradition of caring for our community. Cocktails at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. Live music by Special Request. Black tie. Tickets are available at www.akrongeneral.org/gala or by calling the Akron General Foundation at 330-344-6888. Presented by the Akron General Women's Board. Sponsored by Medical Mutual. Your attendance will help Akron General continue to provide outstanding compassionate healthcare to the community we love.
