Bishop Francis Silas Chatard began
work to open an infirmary here in St.
Joseph's Seminary by 1878. Many local
residents and physicians opposed the
infirmary, fearing the spread of
disease. The Daughters of Charity St.
Vincent de Paul in Maryland sent
sisters to take charge of the
infirmary 1881. It was incorporated as
St. Vincent's Infirmary 1884.

Overcrowding required new
infirmary, built 1889 at South and
Delaware Streets. By 1899, new
infirmary added 19 private rooms,
an operating room, and an operating
theater used for teaching.
Industrialization of city and
continuous influx of patients created
safety problems; building damaged by
gas explosion 1908. Moved to Fall
Creek Boulevard 1913.
