The Palmerston North Hospital is turning 125 this year.
Known as a quasquicentennial, the 125th year is a chance to bring everyone together for some fun and to reflect on the contributions of those who brought us to this point. A small committee has been set up as overarching organisers of the programme.
We want to involve the community, past staff and patients, as well as those working here, in our plans.
Any celebration of this kind takes good planning and since August last year we have been identifying activities that might capture the imagination of our community. We believe that celebrations should not be confined to a single event, but should be spread across the whole year in a sustained and planned way to make the most of
the attention that will focus on our hospital.
