history in the making

February 25, 2011


in 1928 my mother graduated from the Royal Jubilee Hospital as a registered nurse.

she dressed the doll with pieces from her uniform, it even has an original pin and a good copy of the hospital cap. Every hospital had their own distinct cap which a nurse wore throughout her career.

Today I toured the new hospital tower, thanks Arlene. State of the art digital electronics, flat screen T.V. for each bed, fireplaces in waiting rooms and staff lounges. Mother would never believe it.

Million dollar views from the 7th floor.  



Follow the footprint.

The Olympic Mountains in one direction and Mt. Baker in another. Both in Washington State.

The Nitobe Memorial Garden, opened in 2004 .  An international statesman, Nitobe Inazo’s picture was, at one time, on the Japanese 5,000-yen note. He died at the hospital in1933.

    My mom enjoyed your post. She said that Mt. Saint Mary’s has a chapel that was built in the same fashion as the Royal Jubilee.
