Moving Stills 29 – St Joseph’s Hospital

St Joseph's Hospital

The original hospital in Phoenix, St Joseph's began in 1895 when the Sisters of Mercy raised enough money to rent a six-bedroom cottage to help tuberculosis patients. In 1945, as Phoenix's population boomed to 100,000 people, the Sisters purchased 10 acres of land (for $25,000 and way up north of the city) for the current site at 3rd Avenue and Thomas Road.
