IVCH to bury time capsule on Peru hospital's 100th

NT Staff

Future generations will get a glimpse of what life at a 56-bed north-central Illinois hospital was like in 2014 when the time capsule being buried prior to Illinois Valley Community Hospital’s Centennial Open House is eventually opened.

“There’s been a hospital on the site in Peru occupied by IVCH for 100 years,” said Gene Vogelgesang, IVCH public relations director. “We’re hopeful the time capsule won’t be unearthed until the hospital reaches another important milestone.”

The time capsule will be buried in the memorial flower garden on the west side of the IVCH building. A ceremony dedicating the capsule is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Sunday, May 4.

The time capsule’s contents were assembled by the hospital’s centennial committee, which includes Vogelgesang, Joan Fernandez, community outreach coordinator; Jackie Barr, volunteer services coordinator; Sue Snell, environmental services director; and Clarissa Barto, medical office manager.

Ceremony, open house
To learn more about the capsule contents and celebrate the hospital centennial, attend the ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Sunday or the open house 1-3 p.m. that day.
