Gina Melby, CEO of JFK Medical Center, addresses employees and board members
as part of the celebration of the 50th year of the hospital.
Dino Gavazza (foreground) and Frank Gueits help carry the capsule that was buried in 2003
after a major expansion of the hospital.
One of the most interesting objects in the capsule was a banner with signatures of the employees addressing the future hospital.
The facility has grown to a 472-bed medical center with more than 600 physicians, 2,000 health care workers and 250 volunteers.
