It soon became evident that tl1e Hospital was too small and could not accom-
modate the increasing amount of patients and it was decided to build a new and
larger hospital and the ground was broken for the same on May 23, 1905. The
conierstone was laid on july 28, 1905. The work was now hastened and in the
following year, on Aug. 5. 1906, tl1e new building was dedicated in the presence
of a large audience.
Tl1e old hospital building was now used as a residence for the 11urses. The
increasing amount of patients also demanded more nurses and as the new hospital
was crowded, the association, after due deliberation, decided in 1913 to purchase
the judge Alden I-Iomestead. a large modern residence adjoining the Hospital
to the north, for a nurses' home. and again used the first hospital for patie11ts.
In 1914, an addition of eighteen rooms was built to the nurses' home and in 1918
the association was requested by the Government to train more nurses for Govern-
ment service and build another addition to the Nurses' Home. The l10me 11ow
has accommodation for seventy-eight nurses. The first class from the training
school, seven in number, graduated in November, 1907. An Alumnfe Association
composed of graduates from the school was organized Nov. 10, 1910, and meets
every month in the Nurses' Home.
Miss Lena Schneider. the nrst surgical nurse, left in 1907. Miss Anna
lloltnzan was surgical nurse from Nov. 1, 1911, until August, 1916. She was
succeeded by Miss Lucy Lauman Oct. 1. 114116. Miss Minnie Xiialker, the first
principal. remained until November, 1908. She was succeeded on Dec. 1, 1908,
by Miss Mary Tl. Ludy, who remained until fall of 'IQ1I. Miss Anna Holtman
was principal pro 10111 for several months 11ntil Miss Anna Lauman assumed l1er
duties i11 August, 1912, and remained till July 1, 1919.
Ifroin a small beginning, the hospital has grown to its present size Hllfl equip-
ment. The number of pupils is steadily increasing. Today it is o11e of the largest
and best known schools for nurses in the city and state. The school is accredited
and recognized by the State lloard of Nurse Examiners. it has enlarged its
curriculum, elevated its standard, broadened its scope to meet each new demand
for a more complete and well rounded education for 11urses.
The hospital now has sixty-one private rooms. ten semi-private rooms, four
small wards. and four large wards.
During tl1e past years, one hundred seventy-three nurses have graduated
from tl1e nurses training school. Forty-Eve graduates served their country
during tl1e XX orld XX ar. At present tl1ere are sixty-five nurses in training.
The llospital Ladies' Aid Society meets once every month in the nurses'
home, and scws for the hospital.-A. M. H.

For some years the Lutheran people in lfort Wayne realized the need of a
Lutheran Hospital in their city, a place where their people could be cared for
in times of illness. Thus it came about that hnally in the year IQO2 a number
of delegates from the various Lutheran churches of lfort Wayne and vicinity
met for the purpose of organizing a hospital association and named it "The
Evangelical Lutheran Hospital Association" of Fort Wlayne and vicinity. This
association was incorporated in the State of Indiana on the 1 llll day of November,
1903, and immediately looked about for a hospital site. In july, 1904, the associ-
ation purchased the old Judge Ninde llomestead on liairtield avenue, and at once
began remodeling the large residence which had twenty-one rooms. A number
of ladies from the various Lutheran churches organized a society in October.
IQO4, naming it "The Hospital Ladies' Aid Societyu. and at once began sewing
the linens necessary to equip all rooms. Mrs. Herman llobrock, now deceased,
was the first president of this society.
The Hospital was- dedicated on Thanksgiving Day in 11104. On December 26,
1004, twenty-six patients were being accommodated. A training school for nurses
in connection with the llospital with a three-year course was organized at the
same time. The First pupil nurse entered the school December 1, 1904. All these
above mentioned dates remind us of great things which the Lord has done and
they call for words and deeds of thanks and praise.
