(NRG)-In honor of its 90th birthday, Good Samaritan Hospital is inviting the community to help them celebrate. A free, old-fashioned picnic lunch will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. this Sunday in the parking area south of the Ron and Carol Cope Heart Center along 31st Street. Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, watermelon, birthday cake, and Tropical Sno will be served while the Knights of Columbus choir, Habitat 4 Harmony and the Kearney High School band entertain guests on the Chapel lawn. The public is asked to please park in the lots south of Good Samaritan Hospital for the event. Founded by the Sisters of Saint Francis in 1924, Good Samaritan Hospital has served not only as a medical facility, but also as a community leader for 90 years. Throughout those 90 years, the Good Samaritan Hospital facility has expanded nine times, provided 350,000 residents of central Nebraska and northern Kansas with advanced healthcare, became Nebraska's first accredited Chest Pain Center, was established as a Level II trauma center featuring AirCare emergency helicopter transport, serves as a nationally accredited cancer center, and much more.
