BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Princeton Baptist Medical Center’s doctors, nurses and staff celebrate 100 years in Birmingham.

Princeton Baptist Medical Center and Baptist Health System held their Centennial Celebration on Monday, May 2, 2022, to commemorate 100 years of serving the Birmingham community.

The event featured guest speakers including state healthcare leaders and political representatives. Additionally, there was a special centennial video presentation.

Hospital memorabilia dating back to the 1920′s was also on display. The team recognized employees who have served more than 40 years.

Also, the team celebrated Dr. Bruce Eich for 48 years of service. Eich was hired on November 15, 1974 and is a respected ophthalmologist, specializing in eye and vision care.

To showcase the hospital’s value of being connected to the community, the Peer Helpers at Hemphill Elementary School lead the attendees of the celebration in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

“We were so blessed by these students and are truly thankful to our community for the outpouring of support showcased at our event,” Princeton Baptist CEO Mike Neuendorf said. “These students are truly our future leaders and brought great energy and excitement to the celebration.”
