Mount St. Mary Hospital records

Series consists of records related to Mount St. Mary Hospital in Victoria, during the time that the Sisters of St. Ann administered and staffed the institution.

Mount St. Mary Hospital was founded in 1941 as a home for “the aged and infirm and chronic cases” as an adjunct to the nearby St. Joseph’s Hospital. The land on which the hospital was built was purchased in 1939 from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria, and that same year the Provincial Government announced a grant of $50,000 to the Sisters for the construction of the facility. The first building was completed in 1941.

In 1965, Mount St. Mary Hospital was asked to initiate an extended care program. A Board of Management was formed in 1967 and the constitution and bylaws were approved in 1968. The board consisted of nine members, six appointed by the Sisters of St. Ann, one appointed by medical staff and one by the City of Victoria. In 2003, the old Mount St. Mary Hospital on Burdette Street was demolished and the new Mount St. Mary on the corner of Fairfield Road and Quadra Street opened. From September 1990, Mount St. Mary Hospital has been owned and operated by the Marie Esther Society.

The records in this series are arranged into five subseries: A. Administration; B. Board of Management and Committees; C. Finance; D. Patient records; E. Photographs, artworks, and moving images.
