Hannibal Regional Hospital is celebrating 20 years, and officials are looking forward to more growth in the future.
Friday, on Arbor Day, hospital and city leaders dedicated a tree in honor of the two decades the Hannibal Medical Campus has served the community and surrounding area, now providing care for patients in 22 counties.
Officials say not only has the quality of healthcare grown over the years, but their commitment has as well.
"When we first moved here 20 years ago, there was one building at the hospital. Since that time, at least 8 additional healthcare buildings have been constructed. And we've grown from an on campus employment base of about 550 people to more than 2,500 healthcare providers," says John Grossmeier, President Emeritus of Hannibal Regional Healthcare System.
Grossmeier says that plans to add even more new services in the future are in the works.
