Photos and memorabilia wanted for People’s Hospital anniversary

Posted by wlpo on January 30, 2014

Get hurt or go into labor in the La Salle and Peru area and there’s a good chance you’ll end up at Illinois Valley Community Hospital.  Your grandparents would have gone to the same hospital but only with a different name.

May marks the 100th anniversary of People’s Hospital, the precursor to IVCH.  You would never know by looking that the building has been there that long.  IVCH Public Relations Director Gene Vogelgesang says hospitals are always adding on.

The anniversary is being celebrated with an open house Sunday, May 4.  They want it to include photos and memorabilia from People’s and St. Mary’s Hospitals.  If you have something to contribute, contact Vogelgesang.

An interview with Vogelgesang is available at the WLPO AM and FM news page.
