Saint Mary's Historical Timeline
Since 1907, Saint Mary’s Hospital has been a vital part of the fabric of Greater Waterbury, CT. The hospital Right Reverend Monsignor William J. Slocum, pastor of Immaculate Conception Church in Waterbury, purchased property on Union and Franklin Streets for $20,000 to fulfill his vision of establishing a hospital in the city’s industrial core. Two years later, Saint Mary’s opened its doors under the direction of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Chambery. The Waterbury American reported, “[February 28, 1909] was a happy day for Waterbury…Everyone who visited the new hospital agreed that Waterbury was to be congratulated on having so modern and so well equipped an institution in the heart of the city...”
Saint Mary’s Hospital continues to be a pioneer in Greater Waterbury, expanding its network of medical services, forging alliances with key healthcare partners, investing in new technology and exploring new ways to enhance access to care, while providing a spiritually enriched environment for our patients.
