This year’s promotion and sharing of its 100th birthday prompted local representative Woodman Page to spearhead the declaration of a House resolution, congratulating the hospital on its Centennial.

Last Thursday, representatives, and senators from the region were invited to attend a session of the North Country Hospital Board of Trustees monthly meeting.

Following an update of the “state of the union,” the group gathered to present the resolution to hospital board chair Frank Knoll and hospital President & CEO, Brian Nall.

Recognition of the 100-year milestone has continued with a historical supplement created by the Newport Daily Express, with copies available at North Country Hospital, a Centennial Family 5K, and 10K walk/run Saturday, June 15, and several other upcoming summertime events and activities.

Even the front Prouty Drive flowerbed has been planted in the shape of 100.
