MetadataShow full item record
The Creighton Memorial St. Joseph’s Hospital is the direct result of a bequest of $50,000 left by Mrs. John A. Creighton, who died on September 30th, 1888. The happy and holy inspiration which prompted Mrs. Creighton to devote a portion of her fortune, as a nucleus of a fund to build a hospital, was munificently seconded by her husband, the Hon. Count John A. Creighton, who added three-fold to the fund, and planned to build on a more magnificent scale than originally intended. The building and grounds represent an outlay of over $200,000, an enduring and beneficent monument to the memory of his wife and his own liberality. PRESENTING our report for the year 1902, we extend to our numerous friends sincere thanks for their contributions, and the liberality they have shown in aiding us toward sustaining our object in life, which is included in the words : "Charity and Aid to the Sick." Our Hospital is based on Charity in every sense of the word. It is open to all the afflicted, and patients are admitted regardless of nationality or religion. Cases of incurable or contagious diseases are not admitted.
