Time Capsule Returned To Methodist Hospital

The hands of time were turned back on Thursday as Salvation Army officials returned a time capsule and its contents to Methodist Hospital.  The bronze container was recently found when crews were demolishing the former Methodist Midtown Hospital at 36th and Cuming,

In 1990 Methodist sold the building to the Salvation Army, where many of the their behavioral health programs were housed until it's demolition this summer.

The time capsule dates back to the May 24, 1906 cornerstone laying ceremony and contains items such as newspaper clippings, photographs and surgical instruments. “It’s fascinating,” says Salvation Army Divisional Leader Major Lee Ann Thompson. “And to think, the people back in 1906 had no idea what that building would mean to so many. Not only was it a place of physical healing, but emotional and spiritual healing as well. It’s impacted more lives than they could have ever imagined.” 

Past and present Methodist Hospital executives and physicians joined Salvation Army leaders for Thursday's unveiling.
