Ohio Valley General Hospital School of Nursing records

About this collection:

➤ The City Hospital opened in 1890, following an initiative by Wheeling women’s groups led by the women of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church. City Hospital took quarters in the former Wheeling Female Seminary and opened to patients in 1892. On January 14, 1914, the East Building of the present hospital complex was opened on the old seminary site, and the hospital officially became Ohio Valley General Hospital. City Hospital Training School for Nurses opened in conjunction with the hospital in 1892 and was the first nursing school in West Virginia. The school of nursing closed in 1988.

The collection consists of selected records from the Ohio Valley General Hospital School of Nursing, including a 1935 procedure book, minute books from the Alumnae Association, 1914-1942, and reports from the School of Nursing Committee, 1915-1935; 1951-1963.
