Throwback Thursday: laying Saint Marys foundations

When Saint Marys Hospital first opened in 1889 it had just 27 beds. That may have been sufficient at the time, but in the nearly 130 years that have followed, the hospital has expanded numerous times to accommodate a growing city and its corresponding medical needs.

Shown here in this photo from the History Center of Olmsted County is work being done on the foundation of one such addition on December 7, 1940.
