Leahi Hospital Kicks Off 2003 National Nursing Home Week

Honolulu, Hawaii — Leahi Hospital kicked off Nursing Home Week today by celebrating a special wedding anniversary for its oldest resident with a living spouse. Florentina Marquez, 95, and her husband, Benny, 99, celebrated 60 years of marriage with a cake decorated with their 1943 wedding photo.
