dc.description.abstractFROM THE OPENING PARAGRAPHS:|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 80th, 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 buildings and grounds represent an outlay of over $200,000; an enduring and benificent monument to the memory of his wife and his own liberality.|The institution is located at the corner of Tenth and Castellar Streets, on ground which for beauty of appearance and healthfulness is unsurpassed.|North, east and south, the Missouri valley stretches for miles before the eye, its boundaries on both sides sharply marked by bluffs. Through this romantic landscape the river winds, shooting from bluff to bluff over the wide expanse of valley. Council Bluffs nestles amid the hills to the east, its arms extending westward almost to the river bank. To the west, the greater portion of Omaha, the city's great residence district is to be seen with its clusters of imposing mansions and modest cottages. To the southwest, South Omaha is outlined against the horizon, its vast industries clearly marked by columns of smoke.en_US
