Hotel Dieu Hospital

Hotel Dieu Hospital

In 1892 Sister Stella had bought the site and with $60,000 borrowed from the Motherhouse, three Daughters of Charity started building Hotel Dieu in 1893. It was the first general hospital in El Paso. There was no electricity and lighting was done by gas. Heat was provided by wood fires. In need for more trained personnel, the sisters also started a nursing school connected with the Hotel Dieu in 1898. In 1987, the hospital was sold to Millbrook, and the name was changed to Landmark Medical Center. One year later, the hospital was sold again. Columbia purchased the medical center and closed it later that same year. The building was demolished in 2003.

My mother was abandoned in this hospital in 1925. No records, no family, nothing. A worker told my adoptive grandparents, there was a baby girl in the hospital for adoption. Adoption? No when they got there one of the sisters gave her to them with no birth certificate no records, nothing. What kind of hospital was this. Giving newborns to people they didn't know. ? Unfortunately my mother got the best parents in the world, but she never knew her real family.

I worked there for 15 years and I loved it.
