On a snowy February day in 1965, a large crowd of Langley citizens gathered to welcome their new hospital building which had been years in the planning.

Two weeks later, 51 patients were moved from the existing cottage hospital to what is now known as Langley Memorial Hospital’s South Tower.

The celebration is being planned by the LMH South Tower 50th Anniversary Committee. It is sponsored by Dr. Elaine Mah of the LMH Medical Staff; LMH Auxiliary; LMH Foundation, LMH Heritage Committee, and LMH Administration and Volunteer Resources.
