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 September 30, 1888. This was the nucleus of a hospital fund, which was augmented by her husband, the Honorable Count John A. Creighton. The building and grounds represent at present an outlay of over $750,000. The hospital is located at Tenth and Castellar Streets. It has a fronting of 470 feet, three wings running back 160 feet. It is four stories in height, the basement being above ground. The location is perfect for hospital purposes, and is sufficiently removed from the business part of the city, about one and one-half miles, to be free from its noises and dust, yet possessing all its advantages. It may be reached from the Union and Burlington stations by boarding a Farnam car, marked Bancroft or Riverview.The capacity of the hospital for patients is 400 beds, which number can be increased if necessary.TRAINING SCHOOL FOR NURSESThe Training’ School for Nurses completing its fifth year of existence has grown steadily year by year, and is one of the greatest assets of the institution.The lectures are given by the Instructors of the Creighton University, College of Medicine, with which the hospital is affiliated. Besides the ordinary course commonly given in other train in g schools, the pupils here have the advantage of practical instruction in physical culture, anesthesia, laboratory, roentgenology and pharmacy, so that, if after graduation the nurses desire to specialize, the experience received during their formative period will play no small part in the selection of the specialty.
