AKMC Hosts Community Centennial Celebration

Monday, June 1st, 2009

Natrona Heights, Pa., - In celebration of its 100-year anniversary, Alle-Kiski Medical Center (AKMC) is hosting a Community Centennial Celebration at its main hospital campus in Natrona Heights on Friday, June 26, 2009 from 6-9 p.m.

The Community Celebration begins with attendees parking at the Allegheny Ludlum parking lot on Pacific Avenue in Natrona Heights and enjoying a complimentary vintage trolley ride shuttle to the hospital. Once on the campus, people may stroll the grounds and view a historical recount of the hospital with photo displays dating back to 1909. Archival nursing and medical equipment will also be on display and those born at Allegheny Valley Hospital can join the Stork Club.

An antique car show is planned as well as horse drawn carriage rides down historic Carlisle Street. A vintage clothing fashion show is planned, along with music and entertainment. Windgate Winery will be offering a wine tasting, and food and beverages reminiscent of a community fair will be available. The hospital’s commemorative history book, prints and DVD will also be on display and available for purchase.

Founded in 1909 and originally named Allegheny Valley General Hospital, the hospital opened its doors in a 20-bed frame dwelling on Second Avenue in Tarentum to meet an urgent community need. The 1909 commitment to quality health care by a small group of doctors remains a hallmark of the more than 1,200 employees and 250 physicians of today’s AKMC. AKMC’s humble beginnings and its development into the leading hospital in the Alle-Kiski valley is inspiring and reflects the vital role that the hospital has played in the community it has the privilege of serving.

Hospital officials expect current and retired Medical Staff, employees and volunteers to attend and welcome members of the community to stop by and enjoy the 100-year history of the hospital. The event is free and open to the public. For more information about the evening celebration, please call 724-226-7021 or 724-226-7178.
