Our History

1910–1929

1910

Public donations allow the hospital's campus to expand to six acres.

1913

A new Nurses' Residence is built and nurses no longer need to live in the "barn." According to the Secretary's report of February 1, 1915, the new residence is "of colonial design, and is as fine a piece of architecture as one would wish to see, and fully demonstrates that there is beauty in simplicity."

The hospital receives its first motorized ambulance, a gift from industrialist George W. Todd.

1914

An administration and maternity building is built on the site of the old homestead, the original hospital site.

1921

In a new age when homeopaths and allopaths are united and the former name no longer has significance, the hospital becomes Highland Hospital of Rochester, reflecting its proximity to the beautiful park which Ellwanger & Barry Realty, Co. have given the city.

George B. Landers, M.D., comes to Highland as its first superintendent, a position he will hold for the next quarter century.

1922

Three Rochester hospitals (Highland Hospital, Rochester General, and The Genesee) unite in an appeal for building funds. Until this time, endowments and improvements have been made almost exclusively through gifts of benefactors.

1924

The North Building is constructed.

1927

Additions are made to the Nurses' Residence.

1929

Highland Hospital School of Nursing publishes its first yearbook.
