Starting out as a summer cottage built high upon "Breezy Knoll" in York Village in 1906, York Hospital has since grown to become one of the most respected, caring and sophisticated facilities in the Seacoast area. Early incorporators purchased the land atop "Breezy Knoll" where the hospital still stands today, for $15,000. In a converted cottage style home, York Hospital opened its doors on July 22, 1906. It was a 10-room hospital and among the first patient's treated, there were diagnoses of Typhoid Fever, Epilepsy, Rheumatism and Delirium; with surgical cases including appendectomies, fracture care, carcinoma, endometriosis and hysterectomy. The first President of the Board was Seabury W. Allen, elected in 1904. - See more at: http://www.yorkhospital.com/about-york-hospital/#sthash.1gnwxexI.dpuf
