Seeking ideas for the 50th anniversary time capsule

Upstate employee Jennifer Congel holds a time capsule which will buried at Upstate University Hospital.

Upstate employee Jennifer Congel holds a time capsule that will buried at Upstate University Hospital on October 15.

There’s still time to contribute ideas for objects to go in the Upstate time capsules, to be installed on Wednesday, October 15 in honor of the 50th anniversary of the opening of Upstate University Hospital’s downtown and community campuses. (10 a.m.-downtown; 1 p.m.-community campus.)

The time capsules are to include items that represent healthcare today, especially at Upstate University Hospital. Ideas already submitted include a Tigger pediatric hospital gown, Healing Muse literary journal, patient handbook, a list of current immunization guidelines for children and a program from the Cancer Center opening.

To share your time capsule ideas, contact Susan Keeter, 315-464-4834,
