Throwback Thursday: Mark UH & Taubman Center 30th anniversary by sharing your story

February 11, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Announcements, Our Employees,

The upcoming Valentine’s Day has a special place in our hearts and in the health of our communities and state. That’s because it was 30 years ago this weekend – on Feb. 14, 1986 – that the last 400 patients in “Old Main” hospital moved to the new University Hospital, and UH opened to new inpatients.  The adjacent A. Alfred Taubman Center, which houses dozens of ambulatory clinics and other services, also opened that day. More than 5,000 people worked in our patient care environment at that time.

If you remember that big transition three decades ago, we’d love to hear from you! Maybe you worked here – or were training for the career you now have. Maybe you or a loved one received care in the early days of the brand-new hospital and clinics. Whatever your story, click here to share your memories and/or photos from that time and you could be featured in Headlines.

We will select the five top entries to win cool UMHS logo items including umbrellas, totes, coffee mugs, and more! The deadline to enter for a chance to win is Sunday, Feb. 14. But we welcome memories and photos anytime, in preparation for the U-M Bicentennial and beyond.
