2018 marks the 125th anniversary of Lancaster General Hospital.
What began quietly in 1893 in a 3-story brick residence in the 300 block of North Queen Street for serving Lancaster’s medical needs has become a comprehensive healthcare delivery system and an integral catalyst for advancing the health and well-being of the multiple communities we serve.
Join us as we celebrate the collective community who contributed to our rich history, and our continued commitment to help our community be well and stay well.
