Children's National Medical Center Celebrates Its 140th Anniversary


In 1870, The Children's National Medical Center first opened its doors in Washington D.C.

On Wednesday, the hospital staff and some former patients celebrated the 140th anniversary of the hospital, honoring a long history of live-saving work that started at the end of the Civil war. Back then, D.C. was filled with young orphans, many of them were sick and had no place to turn.

FOX 5's Matt Ackland has more on this story.
