Inscription. In 1951, when Irvin G. Bieser, Sr. was president of the hospital Board of Trustees, this cornerstone was placed during construction of the Main Building. A construction addition in the 1970ís relocated the entry way and the cornerstone became tucked away behind a plastered wall. It was uncovered during renovation in 2008.

On November 11, 2008, along with then MVH President and CEO Mary Boosalis, Irv Bieser, Jr., and his sister, Cathy Bieser Black, opened the original time capsule revealing several items including their fatherís dedication remarks containing a handwritten notation.

A re-dedication ceremony was held on Sept. 30, 2011, in which Irv Bieser, Jr. and family members replaced the time capsule with new contents including mementos of the construction of the Heart and Orthopedic Centers building, which ushered in a new chapter in the history of Miami Valley Hospital.

At the dedication, Mr. Bieser read from his fatherís handwritten note of 1951:
“May this new building of the Miami Valley Hospital continue to serve the growing needs of all our citizens without discrimination- rich and poor, young and old- regardless of creed or race, for years and years to come.”
 
Erected 2011.
