Founded Sept., 1850. This institution is under the charge of the Sisters of Mercy. The hospital building is a handsome brick structure; was erected about five years ago, at a cost of $100,000, and will accommodate about 500 patients. It is a general hospital, admitting almost all diseases except small-pox. Although the entire pecuniary and domestic management of the institution is under the control of the Sisters of Mercy, in the admission and treatment of patients there is no distinction made on account of religious faith, and every patient is permitted to receive visits from clergymen of any religious denomination.
Terms of admission vary with the accommodations. In the larger, or what are called the public wards, the price is $7.00 per week; and in the private rooms, of which there are a large number, the price is $15.00 per week. There are constantly in the hospital a considerable number of patients who pay nothing, they being kept as charity patients. The institution has also an arrangement with the Chicago Relief and Aid Society, by which forty beds are kept at the disposal of that society for the accommodation of such sick poor as its officers may desire to send there.
The managing head of the hospital is Rev. Mother Genevieve.
The appointment of the Staff is under the control of the Faculty of the Chicago Medical College. The hospital has an average of about 250 patients constantly, and furnishes complete clinical facilities to students.
