Hospital began as a small outpatient dispensary in 1898. The hospital was
founded by the Suabian Sick Benefit and Folks Festival Society, a group of
concerned citizens. As a result of their efforts property was purchased
and the hospital was built. On October 1, 1898, a charter was granted to
the "German Hospital and Dispensary of Hudson County, New Jersey." Thus
began a century of service to teh people of Jersey City and Hudson County,
New Jersey. The stated object and purpose of that corporation was "to care
for, nurture the sick, injured, or those afflicted by disease, or victims
of accidents or casualty, and for the training, education and instruction
or preparation of persons, male or female, to act as nurses."
The site of
the present building was dedicated in May 1912. In 1918, at the onset of
the hostilities of World War I, the original German Hospital was renamed
Greenville Hospital reflecting the name of the community it served. A
building program started in 1925 added new services to meet the increasing
needs of the community. The building on Kennedy Boulevard was completed in
1964 and the west wing in 1971.
hospital became part of Liberty HealthCare System, Inc. in 1990, when it
joined Jersey City Medical Center and it's Family Health Center as
partners in community care. In 1991, Greenville re-established itself as a
center of community pride for patients, as inpatient services and
outpatient care was strengthened.
