IVIL War days were as yet undreamed of when three Sisters of Charity came to this city eighty-two years ago, and founded St. Mary'* Hospital on its present site and in a part of its present plant at Main Street West and Cenese'e Street. Two small, dilapidated stone stabies which stood on the premises were fitted up tor tem- porary .use as the first hospital in Rochester. The beloved Sister Hieronymo headed the little band of cour- ageous nuns who, with the assistance of the Rev. Michael O'Brien, then pastor of St. Patrick's Church Hater the Cath- edral 1\ purchased the land and opened the hospital Septemper •a, 1857. Incorporation of St. Mary's Hospital took pfaeie September 19, 1857, eleven days after it was opened, and the present east wing, three stories in height and fronting on Genesee Streefj was erected two years later. Hardly had the Sisters established their little hospital as a going concern when the tragedy of the Civil War confronted them. St. Mary's offered all it had, and more, to the cause of the Union. Its meager facilities were scon taxed to the limit in the care of wounded soldiers. In spite of the emergency which the w»t created the Sisters went ahead with plans which had previously been completed for the extension of the plant to mgtude the .presenTTratn— building facing Mam Street West, and work, on the structure ' was begun in } 862. Impelled by a growing sense of appreciation of the heroic efforts of the handful of Sisters of Charity and the imperative needs for hospitalization of the wounded Northern soldiers, the community opened its heart and purse to. the struggling institution and its founders. With the close of the Civil War the hospital settled'back gradually to serve the civilian needs of fKe city arid Surround- ing territory and, during a period of twenty-five years, enjoyed a normal and healthy expansion of activities and service., then, in 1890, sensing the need for greater and more modern equip- ment. Bishop McQuaid set about raising a fund to provide new beds arid Other improvements. Twenty thousand dollars, was subscribed for this purpose in short Order, t . • At midnight, February 15* 1891-. flames swept the^Struc- ture and the fruit of thirty years' efforts was wiped away in a few hours. Three hundred patients, were safely removed from the burning hospital despite the fact that most of them were asleep when the fire was disddvered. On the day following the fire the old Union and Advertiser, then one of the city's two leading newspapers, started a fund to enable the Sisters to replace an estimated loss of S6O.O00. By September o' the same year the hospital reopened its doors to patients. Steady and rapid expansion followed. A training school tor nurses was established: in- 1891. the operating pavilion was erected in 1898, arid the contagious pavilion one year later. In 1903 the maternity department in the west, wing was add- ed, followed ih three years by a beautiful chapel. Purchase of the city's first motorized ambulance was consummated in 1914. the following year,saw the erection of a new ppwer house and laundry. The' present Nurses' Hohie Was completed) . in 1923. Now. on the threshold of another important milestone in its eventful career* St. Mary's, laces the rteed lor greater capacity and more modern structures ar»d equipment with confidence that the riot distant future will see its fulfilment.
