Cuero, Texas: Cuero Regional Hospital (CRH) will celebrate 50 years on September 8, 2020 since the Hospital opened its doors on Sept. 8, 1970. To commemorate this special date, Cuero Regional Hospital senior leaders, medical leaders and board will gather for a short ceremony and burial of the 50 year time capsule. The time capsule, donated by Ful-O-Pep of Cuero, contains photos and mementos contributed by staff and physician leaders over the past 50 years.

“We are thrilled to hold this celebration on the actual 50th anniversary date and, while we wanted to open this up to the entire staff and public to attend, with our current environment due to COVID-19, we are unable to do so. But, we have planned to share the event with all those that would like to watch by broadcasting it live on our Cuero Regional Hospital Facebook page. The short ceremony will feature our senior leaders, our medical leadership team, as well as memories from Dr. Reese, who has been with the hospital since it’s opening in 1970,” said Lynn Falcone, CEO of Cuero Health.

Also, to commemorate 50 years, Cuero Regional Hospital developed a 50 year logo that has been used throughout the year to recognize and mark this significant milestone. Since 1970, Cuero Regional Hospital has provided quality care, close to home to the citizens of Cuero, Goliad, Kenedy, Nixon, Westhoff, Yoakum, Yorktown and all rural communities that lie between with pride and care.

“With our growth, one thing has not changed: our dedication to providing compassionate care to our patients. We are proud of our progress, and with our community’s continued support and our dedicated staff and providers, we look forward to continuing to deliver quality care close to home for years to come,” said Lynn Falcone, CEO of Cuero Health.

Those that wish to watch the time capsule burial ceremony are encouraged to log onto Cuero Regional Hospital’s Facebook page prior to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 8th to watch the ceremony. For more information, visit www.cuerohospital.org
