Open house will be held at the Sacred Heart Hospital in this city next Friday, May 12th. National Hospital Day, May 12, is the 102nd anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, who was the pioneer in modern hospital methods as well as in nursing.

Leading hospitals in the United States and Canada established their “day” a year ago and this year the movement for the education of the public concerning hospitals and hospital service has crossed the oceans to England and Australia.

The public will be invited to come in and see how the sick and injured of the community are cared for. This will be done at all the hospitals in the country and in many of them graduation exercises for student nurses will be held on Hospital Day.

At the Sacred Heart Hospital the program for National Hospital Day will include the flag raising ceremony under the auspices of the American Legion. The flag will be presented to the hospital by the legion and the presentation address will be made by Mayor C. E. Gates.
