HNJH Celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the Building of the Annex
Now Golden Leaves Living Center

Newberry, MI — May 8, 2018

Helen Newberry Joy Hospital will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the building of the Luce County Annex, now Golden Leaves Living Center, on Wednesday, May 16 from 1pm-3:30pm in the Golden Leaves Dining Room as part of National Nursing Home week.

“As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the building, we are proud of the impact its presence has had on our community. We are also thankful for those past Trustees, who without their vision, we would not be able to celebrate such a milestone,” remarks Scott Pillion, HNJH CEO.

Now Golden Leaves Living Center, the Annex was constructed in 1988 with the support of community members. The Hospital Board of Trustees during construction were Delbert Musgrave, Lois Michelin, Donald Pentland, Joan Clark, Christine Elsner, Howard Fuller, Robert D. Gibson, MD, Ernest Hetrick, Thomas W. Hicks, Jack Lee, D.J. Massoglia, Sharon Pelletier, and Nancy Quick. While the “Annex” has been in existence for much longer, this celebration commemorates 30 years of the current building.
