Everyone relies on hospitals at some point in their lives. We rely on the expertise of medical staff to treat diseases and help patients live longer, healthier lives. In many ways, hospitals have a substantial impact on the health and wellness of the surrounding community.
However, have we ever thought about how our local hospitals came into existence? Who were some of the medical pioneers in our county? How do certain medical related laws impact our communities? How do medical breakthroughs impact patients in our area hospitals? In our upcoming exhibit, Montgomery County Hospitals, we will explore the evolution of hospitals and medical treatment in Montgomery County.
