1. Inaugural Meeting of Ohio Hospital Association Marker
Inscription.  About 60 leaders of Ohio hospitals gathered at the Hotel Breakers on August 25, 1915 to form the Ohio Hospital Association (OHA), the nation’s first state hospital association. Established 15 years after the American Hospital Association, the OHA formed, in part, to address state legislation regarding hospitals and public health. Issues addressed in OHA’s first years included Ohio’s 1915 Nurse Practice Act, workers’ compensation rates, and the federal Harrison Narcotics Tax Act. A century later, OHA represents 220 hospitals and 13 health systems guided by a mission “to collaborate with member hospitals and health systems to ensure a healthy Ohio.”
 
Erected 2015 by the Ohio Hospital Association and The Ohio History Connection. (Marker Number 30-22.)

2. Marker on Cedar Point’s Midway
from Perimeter Road 2 miles from the Cedar Point parking lot entrance. Marker is in the Cedar Point amusement park complex on the Cedar Point Midway (the concrete boardwalk at Cedar Point Beach) across from Hotel Breakers. Tell the parking lot ticket-takers that you are going to the Breakers Hotel and they should waive their parking fee and direct you to Perimeter Road, but hotel parking may not be much cheaper. By going around the 364 acre Cedar Point amusement park rather than through it you will not have to cough up the amusement park entrance fee to reach the midway. Touch for map. Marker is at or near this postal address: 1 Cedar Point Dr, Sandusky OH 44870, United States of America. Touch for directions.
