Prince County Hospital, Summerside - 1951

    A while back when a family member was a patient at Prince County Hospital I was interested to study this large architectural rendering displayed in one of the Unit corridors.  
     This was the second Prince County Hospital built in 1951 on Beattie Avenue - it replaced the first Prince County Hospital, opened in 1912, was located on St. Stephen Street.
    It's evident as you move through Prince County Hospital that they take pride in their history and display it in many different ways throughout the facility.
    A very good history of the hospital and nurse's residence was written in 2012 by Katherine Dewar and Wayne Wright - This Caring Place: The History of the Prince County Hospital and the School of Nursing.
