The Wilhenford Children’s Hospital opened its doors on October 26, 1910. One hundred years later, nearly to the day, MCGHealth Children’s Medical Center marked a century of exceptional pediatric care. October 29 was a day full of festivities, including a community forum and centennial celebration featuring many representatives from across the region and state.

These key players in the wellbeing of children — including the president of the Georgia chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the district health director, the president/CEO of the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce, the superintendent of Richmond County Schools, and leaders from Albany, Columbus and Savannah, as well as Augusta and Savannah mayor’s offices — met to discuss child health priorities and how the region will best address them in the future.

“This milestone event celebrated our community and its efforts to establish this hospital a century ago, and what we’ve accomplished in caring for children throughout the years,” says Dr. Bernie Maria, chief pediatrician of the Children’s Medical Center. “Along with celebrating the past, it also represents what our hospital will do for children in the future.”
