Providence seeking stories and photos for history book


April 25, 2019

WALLA WALLA—Providence St. Mary Medical Center is seeking stories and photos for a book being written on its history by a local author.

The hospital has contracted with Linda Andrews to write a book on the history of the hospital, St. Vincent Academy and the legacy of the Sisters of Providence in Walla Walla. The sisters arrived in Walla Walla in 1863 to open a school at the request of St. Patrick Catholic Church. Over time, the sisters began caring for the sick as well, and recognized the need for a hospital. St. Mary Hospital, the city’s first hospital, opened in 1880.
