Party of the Century for Akron General
Black-tie gala honored 100 years of caring for the community
On February 20, 1914, The Peoples Hospital was born as a hospital "not just for doctors, but for the people of Akron" decreed F.A. Seiberling, the founder and first president of the Board of Directors. Today this creed still permeates all that we do as the Akron General Health System, and in 2014 our Centennial celebrations will culminate with a Gala honoring a century-long tradition of caring for our community.
Akron General held a black-tie Centennial Gala on Saturday, August 23 at the John S. Knight Center in downtown Akron. The nearly 1,000 attendees – including community members, employees, volunteers, physicians and Board members – all showed a great outpouring of support for the 100th anniversary of Akron General.
The spectacular evening, which included the official signing of the agreement with Cleveland Clinic, enthusiastically kicked off another 100 years of Akron General caring for Akron and surrounding communities. The event included cocktails, dinner, silent auction, dancing and live music by Special Request. The Gala was presented by the Akron General Women’s Board and sponsored by Medical Mutual.
