On July 27, 2012, the Prince County Hospital will celebrate its 100th anniversary.
From the hospital’s original building in Summerside on the southwest corner of Central and Market streets to the construction of a new 105-bed hospital in 1951, to its present day 104-bed acute care version that opened in 2004, Prince County Hospital has been providing quality acute health care to the residents of Summerside and Prince Edward Island for almost a century.
The present day Prince County Hospital is Prince Edward Island’s second largest acute care hospital, providing a wide range of in-patient, out-patient and community-based health care services.
The fact that PCH has been able to thrive and adapt in an ever-changing health care climate over the last century is a testament to the excellence and dedication of its health care providers and staff.
A committee comprised of Prince County Hospital staff and members of the hospital’s foundation are meeting regularly to plan activities for the centennial celebration.
A broader committee that includes community partners are looking at ways to incorporate the anniversary into community events during the spring and summer months.
I would like to thank the hard working and dedicated staff at the PCH, both past and present on behalf of all Islanders you have helped over the years.
