The main concept behind this annual report are the various regulations that the hospital needs to abide by and how they affect the work of the hospital. During the past year a lawsuit was brought against the Commission on Hospitals and Healthcare because they drastically slashed the hospital budgets. The Primary Care Center opened in November of 1975. The hospital celebrated its 150th anniversary on May 26, 1976.
