Anticipation abounds as we round the curve of winter and soon move past the spring equinox! Nantucket is abuzz with preparations for the upcoming 2019 season. Heading the Island news is the “soft” opening of the brand new Nantucket Cottage Hospital which services approximately 10,000 ER encounters in summer. And while Century House is prepared to offer a Band-Aid or two, it’s comforting to know that our guests have 24/7 access to the Island’s state-of-the-art facility and the affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston’s premiere teaching hospital.
Founded in 1911 and conceived by the visions of Dr. John S. Grouard and Dr. Benjamin Sharp, the original small Cottage Hospital was located just around the corner from the Century House and grew apace with the island community’s needs, relocating to its present location in 1957. With the just completed new facility, the Island awaits the demolition of the old hospital… and the grand opening schedule for this summer. Pictured above is a view of both the old (grey shingles) and new (light brown shingles) facilities. When demolished, the area will accommodate additional parking.
On Saturday, August 10, 2019, come enjoy the community spirit, and support the hospital by attending Boston Pops on the Jetties Beach Nantucket – just minutes away from Century House. For over 20 years, Boston Pops on Nantucket has been the largest and most popular summer event on the island, attracting thousands to Jetties Beach for a night of spectacular entertainment – all to raise critical funds for Nantucket Cottage Hospital.
