As our 34 plus bed hospital evolves to meet today's ever- changing health care needs, the main focus remains on the patient and PHB's role in the community. The hospital has experienced enormous changes since its founding in 1919. Today, technological changes in health care are occurring at an even faster rate. While the hospital has kept pace with these rapid changes, its strength lies in the personalized healthcare given by the PHB family, which includes the physicians, employees, and board of directors.
