St. Joseph's, Innovis Health host open house, dedicate chapel
Hundreds of visitors filed through St. Joseph's Area Health Services and Innovis Health Park Rapids during an open house Sunday. Employees led tours throughout the facilities, allowing guests to view the new spaces and departments up close.
Official services marked the near-completion of the $26 million new building and renovation project.
The late Sister Margaret Smith's next of kin revealed photographs to mark the newly dedicated Sister Margaret Smith Chapel. Sister Margaret gave 62 years of service to St. Joseph's starting from the day the doors opened in 1946 until her retirement in 2008. She died April 19.
Sister Margaret's sister, Louise Kubarek, was on hand for the unveiling along with her daughter, Patti Cooke (Sister Margaret's niece). Other relatives received places of honor as they took in the dedication.
