THE NEW GENERAL HOSPITAL
The Details Leading to its Organiza-
zation, its Purposes and the Cit-
zens Interested in its Control
The organization of a much needed
general hospital Is practically com
pleted by the securing of a long leaso
ont ho 5th of November and the selec
hotel, the appointment of a well quali
fied head nurse who will arrive from
the Wise Memorial hospital In Omaha
ont ho 6th of November and the selec
tion of a thoroughly representative
executive board and auxiliary board.
Tho hospital will bo registered and
consequently have In connection with
It a well equipped training school for
nurses. There will be. accommoda
tion for 28 to 30 patients, as well as
provision for head nurse and some
seven or eight assistants. The origin
of the movement was the express de
sire of tho local physicians and sur
geons to have ono hospital under the
auspices of some local charitablo or
church organization, instead of the ex
isting smaller ones. When it became
known, some months ago, that Dean
J. J. Bowker of tho Episcopal church
had gained several years experience
in institutional school and hospital
work he was approached by a number
oft ho local doctors and was pressed
to do all in his power to make a gen
eral hospital possible and feasible.
Since Easter details have been grad
ually worked out, tho doctors and tho
leading business men have been con
sulted, buildings have been considered,
the needs of the city have been can
vassed, and two weeks ago the vestry
of tho Episcopal church formally de
cided by an unanimous vote to ac
.quiesce in the movement urged by the
doctors! Thf following testimonial
received by the vestry may bo said to
have beent he means of bringing mat
ters to a head:
"Whereas, The hospital is a product
of our christian civilization and"has
.always been, and rightly so, recog
nized and supported as an eleemosy
nary institution. And whereas under
individual ownership the hospital must
necessarily be commercialized and its
character as a benevolent institution
Therefore be It resolved: That 'the
momberso ft he Lincoln County Med
ical Society and other physicians pres
ent by invitation, in special meeting
assembled do hereby heartily endorse
a proposltion'by Dean Bowker and tho
vestrymen oft he Episcopal church to
establish a hospital, in North Platte,
under the auspices of said church,
the object of which will be .like all j
church hospitals without exception,
humanitarian not commercial. And
be it further resolved that we hereby
pledge our undivided support to such
J. B. Redfield, Willis J. Redfleld,
Dr. J. K. Elms, Fred J. Wurtelle, M. D.,
N. McCabe, John S. Simms, Voorhees
Lucas, T. J. Kerr, Dr. M. A. Ames,
Geo. B. Dent, L. C. Drost, E. W. Fet
ter, M. D., Brady, Neb., H. H. Sad
ler, Hershey, Dr. Gordon, Sutherland,
Dr. Kennon, Maxwell.
When this announcement was made
by tho vestry, it was found that
through tho generosity of Doctors Red
field, Dent and Wurtelle, the new hos
pital woul be nlmost fully equipped
at tho beginning by n complete and
freo donation of all the furniture and
necessary, Instruments used in tho
private hospitals being given up.
Several meetings have been recently
held between the doctors and the com
mittee of the church vestry to perfect
tho organization. While the hospital
will be under the auspices of the Epis
copal church, it will be thoroughly
general in its policy, and every con
sideration has been made to make pro
vision for tho hospital to appeal to all
sorts of conditions of our citizens.
The name of the hospital will be the
Good Samaritan (General) Hospital,
because it is generally customary to
dedicate hospitals in some such way,
but the name it is hoped will only
Berve to emphasize the general char
acter of the aim of the executive com
mittee of the . vestry. While Dean
Bowker will bo chairman of the exec
utive committee, and general manager
and while the bufk of the work of or
ganizing has fallen upon the shoulders
of Messrs. J. Q. Wilcox, C. S. Clinton,
and C. W. Edwards, with Judge J. S.
Hoagland as their legal representative,
it will be seen by the names of the gen
tlemen serving as members of the ex
ecutive board that evpry phase of
North Platte activities will bo repre
sented Tho .executive or management
board will consist of Messrs. J. J.
Halltgan A. F. Streltz, F. E. Bullard,
I. L. Bare, L. B. Dick, C. W. Edwards
with Dean Bowker as chairman.
Tho Lincoln County Medical Associ
ation will also arrange to be represent
"ecfih art advisory capacity;
The following ladles have been se-,
lected and are being asked to serve
as an auxiliary board to stand be
hind the executive committee in their
effort to make the hospital a real
civic institution of the broadest char
acter: Mrs. H. M. Grimes, president,
Mrs. J. W. Payne, Mrs. E. F. See
berger, Mrs A P. Kelly, Mrs. C. R.
Morey, Mrs. C. F. Iddings, Mrs. E. T.
Tramp, Mrs. Fred Elliott, Mrs. Horton
Munger, Mrs. D. C. Congdon, Mrs. H.
Waltemath. Mrs. W. H. McDonald,
Mrs. W. Hendy, Mrs. James Louden,
Mrs. E. A. Garlichs.
On or about the 5th of November
tho spacious building to be used on
west Sixth street will bo turned over
for some alterations and the entire
intorior will bo subjected to a thor
ough rennovation. Miss Pearl W. Lar
son, who comes as head nurse, after
considerable experience in the Wise
Memorial hospital, and who is en
dorsed in the highest terms by Omaha
physicians, will arrive about the first
of November, and preparations will
begin at once with a view to having
everything in readiness to open on
November 15th. It is needless to say
that tho now Institution will fill a long
and badly felt need In North Platte.
Citizens will wish success to tho move
ment because It will remove from tho
city a defect that has been felt for a,
long time. Coming so soon after the
organization of the board of Assocl
ated Charities, which movement also
originated,, with tho vestry of tho
Church of Our Saviour, It will bo a
matter of congratulation to our citi
zens us they realizo what advances wo
are making in our strides to bo tho
real and useful metropolis of western
The official visitors of the hospital
will bo Mrs. GN T. Field, and Mrs. J.
McGraw The auxiliary board will, It
is hoped, be made even more repre
sentative Should any financial profits
arise from the institution it is tho in
tention to use such a surplus solely
for the enlargement and further
equipment of tho work. Tho rates will
be mado as low as tho expenses will
allow, and it is felt that the commit
tees in charge will havo tho loyalty
and practical help of all our citizens
irrespective of whatever church,
lodge, club or charitable organization
they may belong to. Tho members of
Church of Our Saviour vestry are: J.
Q. Wilcox, senior warden; F. W.
Rincker, junior warden, C. W. Ed
wards, secretary, Miss Annio C.
Kramph, treasurer, Robert Armstrong,
Judgo J. S. Hoagland, J. Guy Swope,
