Sacred Heart Hospital

(-as transcribed from page 308)

The Sacred Heart Hospital, of Eau Claire, was first started in 1889, by the Sisters of Saint Frances.  The first building contained seventeen rooms and was under the charge of three sisters.  Since this time the buildings have been three times enlarged, the last building being erected in 1912, is used as a convent for the sisters, while the entire upper floor is used as the operating room.  The Sacred Heart Hospital is the oldest in the city, and the large three-story brick buildings are located on a large plat of ground high on a hill, which affords an abundance of fresh air for its patients.  The hospital has now accommodation for one hundred and thirty patients, whose wants are looked after by thirty-four sisters.  This institution is open for all classes regardless of their religious belief, and all doctors of good repute are admitted to practice.  The mother hospital is located  at the city of Springfield, Ill.
