Does anyone happen to know which St. Elizabeth the St. Elizabeth hospital was named for? Is it St. Elizabeth from the gospels or perhaps St. Elizabeth of Hungary? I can't seem to find anything on this. I was born there in 1966 and would just like to know which St. Elizabeth it was.

I vaguely recall a statue of a woman with an apron and loaves of bread. That would be St. Elizabeth of Hungary.

Note I said vaguely. I may be recalling something else.

It was named for the St. Elizabeth society of catholic women who donated $700 to start the original 12 bed hospital in 1878.

And now it's a treatment center for heroin addicts (sad but true). At least it's not sitting empty and doing something to help the issue(albeit it's a mess that we have the issue in the first place)

Have no idea but I was born there in 1943 and it was called St Anne's then. St. Elizabeth's came later.

St. Ann's was simply the maternity wing.

Default Thanks So Much!

Thanks so much for all of your replies. I, too, believe that it must have been St. Elizabeth of Hungary through further research and reading.

I absolutely got goosebumps when I read that the maternity ward used to be called St. Anne's. I didn't know that at all. When I picked my confirmation saint (as an adult when converting to Catholicism), I chose St. Anne. I didn't even really have an idea why I chose her but just felt led to do so.

As for the connection to heroin treatment, I have a very close relative who is very dear to me who has struggled with this addiction and I'm just so thankful for treatment centers. God knows we sure need more of them in Dayton. It's unfortunately a nationwide epidemic at this point. I actually think it is Crisis Care that is located there and is kind a clearinghouse to connect people with all kinds of treatment programs such as substance abuse, mental health issues, etc.

If anyone has any further info, I'd love to hear more. Thanks again.
