Starting out as a summer cottage built high upon “Breezy Knoll” in York Village in 1906, 纽约医院 has since grown to become one of the most respected, 位于海岸地区的护理及先进设施. Early incorporators purchased the land atop “Breezy Knoll” where the hospital still stands today, for $15,000. In a converted cottage style home, 纽约医院 opened its doors on July 22, 1906. It was a 10-room hospital and among the first patient’s treated, 他们被诊断为伤寒, 癫痫, Rheumatism and Delirium; with surgical cases including appendectomies, 骨折治疗, 癌, 子宫内膜异位和子宫切除术. 董事会首任主席是Seabury W. 艾伦于1904年当选. The cottage remained as the hospital’s main building for care for 50 years before its then Board of Trustees, led by Roy Sturtevant embarked on a fundraising campaign to erect a new, 照顾病人的现代化设施. A $400,000年“现代”, 2-story building was built on the hospital property (dubbed the ’58 Building) and opened April 12, 1959. 这个品牌的新, 私人提供最先进的医院, 半私人及四人房(共32张), along with 6 bassinets and 2 nurseries on the upper floor for inpatient care; and surgery, 紧急, lab & x-ray, 以及医院的支持性服务，比如饮食, 供应, 管家, 等等被安置在较低的楼层.
1959年9月8日，旧村舍医院被拆除. 这座建于58年的建筑至今仍屹立不倒, though it has been added onto and modified several times to be the 纽约医院 we all know and love today. The original ’58 Building is the current Hancock Wing upper and lower floors of the hospital. In 1960, 医院的入住率从66%提高到85%, 手术增长了130%, x光80%，实验室检测125%. 医院的空间很快就用完了. In 1962, a 3-story addition to the hospital was completed on the south wing of the building (on the Barrell Mill Pond side of the building) that included space to increase the bed count to 41, 增加了一个带有室外阳台的日光浴室, 更多的办公室, 一个护士站, 会议室, 药店, 以及扩展医疗记录的额外空间, 实验室和中央消毒设备. 这一新增项目目前将乳房护理放在第2层, 实验室接待区在主楼层, 和IS设备存储在较低的水平.
A 2-story north wing addition took place in 1965 to add space for the expanding laboratory, x-ray, 一个新的门诊候诊室和更多的办公空间. It went through additional renovations over time and currently houses the laboratory, CT Scan, and Cath Lab on the lower level and the Ellis Conference Room, 管理和心血管护理二级. The next major addition happened in 1968 when Extended Care services were added. An entire new wing of the hospital was constructed and attached to the ’58 building via a corridor. The 40-bed Extended Care Wing – called the Henry Strater Wing was dedicated on May 25, 1969. 还有崭新的病房, 该项目增加了一个新的厨房和餐厅, 美容院, 壁炉和医院的第一台彩电. 延长护理服务一直保留到2008年, when the skilled nursing service was transitioned to Durgin Pines Nursing Home in Kittery.
The wing is currently home to inpatient rooms and 家庭护理 (birthing and pediatrics). 到20世纪70年代末, the hospital was providing services for 68 acute care beds and 18 skilled nursing beds in a space that was designed for a 46-bed hospital. The community was expanding and pressure to expand was felt again. The board and leadership looked at many alternatives but decided upon an idea to construct a new wing to solve the space issues in 1979. Regulatory issues and CON reviews delayed the project but the hospital pressed on. Its 4.4 million expansion, known as the Cameron Biewend Wing opened in June, 1983. 它建在大楼的西北角, and provided the hospital with its new entrance on Lindsay Road. The expansion provided new space for many services to move into – including the 紧急 department (with ambulance entrance), 新门诊区域, 放射学, 5张病床的特别护理病房, new lobby and admitting on the ground floor and new semi-private and private inpatient rooms on the second floor to replace the former 41-bed acute care wing in the ’58 building.
The space in the ’58 building that was vacated was then renovated and turned into physical therapy, 额外的实验室空间, 心脏病学, 医疗记录, 医学图书馆, 办公室和一个日光浴室. Things remained quiet for a while as staff and patients became accustomed to the new space. 但是…正在酝酿之中! By 1985, the surgical services at the hospital had grown well beyond its space. 现在30岁了, the center needed more space than the 2 operating rooms could handle, 另外一个扩建计划也出现了. In 1992, the Baldwin Family 手术 center opened in the basement of the new Biewend Wing(after having relocated 供应 that were once housed there to a new location, 然后建立一个4,000年科幻之外). 新的外科中心有自己的入口, an additional OR (bringing the total to 3) and provided for expanded surgical capabilities, 特殊程序和肿瘤护理. 医院并没有就此止步. 增加了许多服务和项目. Most significant changes have occurred in the communities around us. 心脏健康研究所在纽顿成立, NH in 1993 (and moved to York in 2002); 纽约医院 began bringing services closer to home by building service centers in the surrounding communities.
第一个, 威尔斯的CA88, was built in 1999 and housed an Urgent Care center and several ancillary services and physician practices. The success of this site led to many others – including 纽约医院 in 南伯威克 in 2004; 纽约医院 in 伯威克 in 2007; Kittery services were added in 2008 but a brand new building was built, 2012年打电话给基特里的CA88. The last major renovation/addition to occur on the hospital’s main campus was an addition to the surgery center, 增加了2个手术室, 扩大的 & post-op space and provided a private recovery area was completed in two phases in 2010 and 2011.
Today, 纽约医院 includes the main hospital building – with all of its additions and changes – along with dozens of community sites and physician practices to care for all of your health care needs. We will continue to grow, as the health care world continues to evolve.
