Since opening in 1975, this facility has had three names. The first, Hutchinson Hospital,
replaced two existing hospitals, Hutchinson Hospital North and
Hutchinson Hospital South.
They had replaced St. Elizabeth and Grace Hospitals.
Later, with a new administrator, it was named Promise Regional Medical Center.
We old fogies continued to call it Hutchinson Hospital even though it had
a marble slab in the lobby with water running down over the name and logo.
With another change at the top, it adopted the final (I hope) name,
Hutchinson Regional Medical Center. . . which at least lets people
know where it is!
(Check out that 1970 something Buick Station Wagon. We did love Buicks.)
