Entering or exiting Norwich, N.Y., from the north end of town, everyone passes UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital as part of their daily routine. They may utilize one of our services, which include Family Practices; Heart Care Center; Internal Medicine; Emergency Services Department; Ambulatory Surgery; Laboratory; Medical Imaging Centers; or Women’s Health Care or they may visit family or friends who are patients at the Hospital.
I invite you to take a stroll in time as you page through this book filled with pictures and articles highlighting the history of Chenango Memorial Hospital. As you do, you will see a glimpse of the hospital in the present as you glance at the past…. You will be able to connect the mission of the hospital today to the vision of the founders of yesterday. During the past 100 years, Chenango Memorial Hospital employees have never lost sight of the valuable service provided to our community and continue to strive to be the best health care providers in the region.
This nostalgic labor of love was researched and published by the Chenango Memorial Hospital Auxiliary who have been an important part of the history of the hospital and continue to be an important supporter of the hospital today. So many people and so much time is given to the hospital and in turn to the community that to account for the value of it would be impossible. This book is another shining example of the valued partnership between the hospital and the Auxiliary.
So, take your time thumbing thought the pages and relive the history of one of the pillars in the community: Chenango Memorial Hospital, 100 years strong.
