HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital is preparing to celebrate it’s 100th anniversary serving Shelby County. The hospital opened its doors on the Fourth of July in 1918.
The hospital’s marketing coordinator Glenda Plunkett says it all started in 1916 through the work of area residents looking to shorten the travel time to receive healthcare.
Plunkett says the hospital plans on serving Shelby County for many more years to come.
The hospital will be hosting festivities to celebrate the anniversary, but those plans will be announced in the near future.
