I worked at this hospital in 1977 when I was 17...It was a great place to work. I worked in the Centrans dept. I now live in Cleveland Ohio and work at The Cleveland Clinic foundation, but still remember the good times here.

This old retired Marine spent many a nite on the porch of the nurses home having a bliss filled few minutes of good night smooching with my love Judy K. (Where is she now?) Ahh, the sixties! Bob Doyle

I remember clearly back in the 1940's when I was about 10 or 12 years old, there was entrance to the hospital on Kendall Street. When you went in and turned left down the corridor, there was a great big old wooden elevator on your right. It was operated by pulling on a rope which passed through holes in the ceiling and the floor. Don't ask me how it worked. I have no idea.

Remember them elivators with a rope/cable used to start and stop. No push buttons for a floor. Some times required a step of a 12 inches to exit and reach the floor.

I lived within a stones throw of the hospital for a number of years--I distinctly remember the round ward (the clarke ward)

I have very personal memories of Memorial Hospital. In August 1955 when I was six I was rushed to the Hospital by my neighbor Ethel Carlberg in her Desoto. I had fallen out of a tree and broke 4 ribs and punctured a lung. It was a Sunday and they had to call the surgeon to operate on me. His name was Dr Paul Ware. He saved my life. Very sadly I never got to thank him before my mother told me he died.

attended nursing school-1952-1955, will never forget the tornado event, the Dr.set up a triage unit in ER, and the look of the faces of the folks when they arrived at the hospital-memories of Dr. Brook, Dr. Kirkendall and many others-a great 3 years

My brother keeps telling me he was born in 1945 at Lincoln Hospital in Worcester and I say Memorial Hospital. I find no history of a Lincoln Hospital. Can someone help me?

I was born here as was my brother and sister. My own children were born there 15 & 14 years ago respectively. My mother attended Nursing school here in late 60's early 70's.

To Joe Lemoine, I believe the hospital you are referring to is Hahnemann Hospital, located at 281 Lincoln Street. It is now part of UMass Hospital. Please see the link below for more information. I hope this helps.
