A New Century Begins for Ivinson Memorial Hospital

A New Century Begins for Ivinson Memorial Hospital

When Ivinson Memorial Hospital (IMH) opened one hundred years ago, it was because of a large gift from one person, Edward Ivinson. This local philanthropist’s gift of land and $50,000 amounts to at least $1,180,400 in today’s dollars, according to one estimate. The hospital was constructed on what is today Ivinson Ave., between 10th and 11th Streets.
