Among the parteners are almost all the large organisations in the area. Born in 1889 with a $5,000 scholarship from Bishop Caspar Borgess, at the behest of Monsignor Francis O'Brien, who established the first hospital in the area when the Sisters of St. Joseph responded to his call to take charge of the hospital.
Kalamazoo was a busy centre with 17,000 inhabitants in 1889, of which one can be proud. As best they could, the needy took good charge of themselves. In the cellar, a young physician, Homer Stryker, worked on ways to enhance the treatment of his orthopaedic clients. Under Sister Eugene's vision, the hospital finally developed into Borgess Health, a hospital and outpatient clinic library that is fully incorporated into the group.
It all began with mental, bodily and sentimental caring, and this heritage is still alive today. Borgess' missions, visions and core beliefs put people at the heart of caring, with gratitude for the roles of the families and their families in this work.
