HGB plans to celebrate its history with community

Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital celebrates 80 years, just as Charlotte’s Sesquicentennial year is being recognized in many ways.  Milestones inspire us to look around and ask when some of our wonderful assets appeared on the scene and who are the people behind the names we see. For example, the four founders of our community can easily be recalled with a simple walk around the Courthouse Square museum block, reading the four street signs of Cochran, Lawrence, Bostwick, and Harris.
