Suburban Hospital Seeks Soon-To-Be 70-Year-Olds

Suburban Hospital in Bethesda opened its doors on Dec. 13, 1943. As part of the celebration for its 70th birthday, the hospital is asking anyone who was born there during its first year to share his or her stories. They can contact Suburban if they choose to do so.

Suburban Hospital opened to accommodate the expanding population in Montgomery County during World War II. It was during the 1940s that the Montgomery County population nearly doubled, and for the first time topped 100,000 people. That decade also saw the growth of the main campus of the National Institutes of Health and the opening of what is now the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, both of which are located in Bethesda near Suburban Hospital.
