A Concord woman will speak in front of the John Muir Board of Directors in mid-April with a proposal to change the name of John Muir Hospital in Concord to “Tom Hanks Hospital at John Muir Concord Campus“.
The woman, Joy Wills, tells Claycord.com she decided to present the proposal because “Not many people know Tom Hanks was born in Concord, and this would be a great way to honor such a hometown legend, who has done so much for our community“.
Hanks was born in Concord on July 9, 1956, but spent much of his childhood growing up in Pleasant Hill. Hanks has never said many good words about Concord, and to our knowledge, has never even been back since he was born here over 50 years ago.
We’ll keep you updated and let you know what happens at the meeting in April.
Are you for or against John Muir Concord Campus being changed to Tom Hanks Hospital at John Muir Concord Campus?
