"Worcester City Hospital is a former public hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts. It was established in 1871 by an act of the Massachusetts state legislature and initially funded with a $200,000 donation from Worcester philanthropist George Jacques. The hospital was initially run out of the Abijah Bigelow house (at the corner of Front and Church Streets). As of 1988, the 271-bed hospital had an occupancy rate of only 39 percent. The hospital was closed in 1991 due to financial difficulty and its campus at 26 Queen Street now houses a non-profit community health center called the Family Health Center of Worcester."

We, however, find little on the hospital's School of Nursing.

Scarce mid-20th C yearbook from this now defunct School of Nursing; OCLC shows divers yearbook editions held only by the Worcester Public Library.
