Labor Day

Labor Day has been celebrated since the 1880s. The first Labor Day parade was held by the Knights of Labor in New York City, and Congress made Labor Day a national holiday in 1894.

This Labor Day, September 3, Community General Hospital will be caring for patients. Many members of the CGH family will honor this holiday, as they do each year, by working.

Ours is not easy work. It is always exacting work. And what we do benefits society in the most fundamental ways: helping maintain and improve a patient’s function, bringing into the world new human life, easing another’s pain, caring for patients with dignity in their last hours or days.

Thank you, members of the CGH family, whose labor helps others every day... including Labor Day.
