Hospital milestone result of support

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital’s service from its location at 525 N. Santiam Hwy. in Lebanon.

Our move to this site in 1952 was made possible by an outpouring of community support, and that support over the last 60 years has been crucial to our growth and continued service to east Linn County.

Healthcare reform has and will continue to create uncertainties for small, rural hospitals across the country. Thanks to Samaritan Health Services and your contributions, our hospital is ready to meet the challenges that will come through healthcare reform.

We are planning now for a large celebration this summer to honor all of you who have played a part in our hospital over the last six decades. We will keep you informed, through the media and other channels, of these plans as they develop.

Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing all of you at the celebration. Until then, we wish you success and prosperity in 2012.
