Wesley Medical Center will hold a public celebration in honor of the hospital's 100th anniversary Saturday at the Sedgwick County Zoo.
From 8 a.m. to 1p.m., employees, volunteers and friends of the medical center will be able to get in for free. From 1 to 5 p.m. the public can tour the zoo for $1.
"We are looking forward to celebrating Wesley's milestone birthday with family, friends and the rest of the Wichita community," said Wesley President and CEO Hugh Tappan.
During the day, people are encouraged to grab stickers throughout the zoo to show how Wesley Medical Center has influenced their lives over the past 100 years.
"We want people to grab as many stickers as apply to them and I think we'll be amazed at the connectivity of how many people are connected to Wesley Medical Center and how," said Mark Bretches of Wesley Medical Center's Marketing and Public Relations department.
Wesley has had some major milestones in their 100 year history - the medical center had the first baby incubator in 1916, and in 1994, became the first Level I trauma center in Wichita.
