Biography/HistoryIn 1913, the Parkview Hospital Training School for Nurses in Jamestown, North Dakota began. A forerunner of Jamestown's Trinity Hospital School of Nursing.
Parkview Hospital as it looked in 1914. Jamestown physicians built it and opened a nursing school. The physicians of Jamestown Clinic - W. Gerrish, W.W. Wood and P.G. Arzt helped put up the capital for a new hospital. The group built a $40,000, 45 bed thoroughly modern, elevator-equipped hospital and it opened in 1913. They called it Parkview Hospital. It would take another $10,000 to make it ready for service. The four-story brick structure featured comfortable patient rooms, south facing sun decks and drew no small amount of attention for having one of the best equipped laundry facilities in the state. Within a year of its opening, Parkview was preparing nurses; it was the first hospital in North Dakota to operate a student nursing program. They asked the Sisters of St. Joseph, an order of nuns based in St. Paul, MN, to consider staffing the new hospital in Jamestown. The transfer was made in Sept. 1917, and the hospital was renamed Trinity Hospital.
