Historical Society Exhibit Honors 100 Years of Hospital Care
The Schuyler County Historical Society is honoring the 100th anniversary of the chartering of Schuyler County’s first hospital with a special exhibit.
“100 Years of Hospital Care in Schuyler County” is now open at the Society’s Brick Tavern Museum in Montour Falls. The exhibit will be in place through the end of April.
A talk about early Schuyler County doctors will be presented by Charles Fausold of Hector on March 21. The free talk, “A Tale of Three Doctors,” will be at 1 p.m. at the Brick Tavern Museum.
The county’s first hospital, the Shepard Relief Hospital, was chartered on Nov. 20, 1920, and the first patients were accepted in May 1921. It was located where the Falls Home is today on Schuyler Street in Montour Falls.
The hospital’s name was changed to Schuyler Hospital in 1951, and the facility moved to its current site on Steuben Street in 1972.
The centennial anniversary exhibit is composed of artifacts from the Historical Society’s own collections and materials on loan from Schuyler Hospital and the Schuyler Hospital Auxiliary. The exhibit includes medical equipment, nurses’ uniforms, documents and many photographs of hospital staff and volunteers, who will be familiar to Schuyler County residents.
