140 Years LogoSeptember 8, 2007 marked a true milestone in the history of St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center: the 140th anniversary of the founding of Paterson's first hospital. Established by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth in 1867, St. Joseph's Hospital opened its arms to the community in a 12-bed house on Church Street in Paterson. A small group of Sisters, with help from Father William McNulty and a handful of volunteers, cared for those in desperate need – the industrialized city's ill, the injured, the hungry poor – an astounding 102 people in that first year. In their second year of operation, the Sisters purchased the Fonda Farm on Main Street (the present site of St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center and St. Joseph's Children's Hospital) and the lives of that band of pioneering Sisters... and all of northern New Jersey was forever changed.
