There is a thread on it on page 2 of Genealogy Section. It doesn't give an opening date. Send a pm to Jinglebells and she can probably give you that. The other thread says it closed around 1966 or 1967. Later in it someone says they were born there in 1967.
Mount Mary Hospital closed on June 14th 1967... The hospital opened in 1924. It was originally the Hazard Hospital. Catholic Sisters took it over in 1947.
Demolition of the Mount Mary Hospital began on April 8th 1968.
In 1965 - plans were annnounced for a brand new Mount Mary Hospital. They even invested in having an artist show how it would look. It was to be built near the area of the old hospital on High Street. It never happened.

This was my birth name. I was born September 30th 1959. I was adopted by John and Jane Kovacik and renamed Jerome Edward Kovacik. I'm trying to find information regarding my birth mother. Nellie Combs. One of the Benedictine Sisters, Sister Raymond, became my adopted cousin. Help?
