Biographical history

In February 1902 an amended Act was passed changing the name of the Grace Hospital (Homeopathic) to Grace Hospital. This amended Act was assented to on March 17, 1902. In addition to the change in name, the Act to Amend the Act to Incorporate Grace Hospital (Homeopathic) indicated that the five Trustees of the Hospital could appoint up to an additional eight Trustees such that the Board would have a minimum of five and a maximum of 13 members. The Board of Trustees was now to be known as a Board of Governors. Judge J.E. McDougall continued as Chairman until his death in 1903. Edward Gurney succeeded him as Chairman.

In March 1926 Grace Hospital amalgamated with the Toronto Western Hospital.

Biographical history

The Grace Hospital Training School for Nurses originated as the Training School for Nurses for the Toronto Homeopathic Hospital in 1890. In 1936 the process of amalgamation linking Grace Hospital with the Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) was completed and the TWH School of Nursing subsumed the functions of the Grace Hospital Training School for Nurses.

Miss Georgie L. Rowan served as Director of the Grace Hospital Training School for Nurses 1911-1936. Following the dissolution of both Grace Hospital and the Training School for Nurses in 1936, Miss Rowan became Supervisor of Nursing for the Private Patients Pavilion of the TWH until retiring in 1943.
