Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Hospital staff held a tree-planting ceremony April 15 to honor employees, medical staff, physicians and volunteers for their 30 years of service to the Plano community. The dogwood tree that was planted symbolizes strength, durability and resilience, according to a hospital news release. Employees were also able to contribute photos and other items for a time capsule that was buried near the tree.
“It’s amazing to look back at all the accomplishments over the past three decades,” Texas Health Plano President Josh Floren said in a statement. "Employees, physicians and volunteers have truly made a difference in the lives of our patients and their families. Thank you for your compassion and dedication to the people in the communities we are so proud to serve.”
More events in honor of the hospital's anniversary are planned for later this year. The hospital is located at 6200 W. Parker Road, Plano. 972-981-8000. www.texashealth.org
