Historic Sites of Manitoba: Grace Hospital (200 Arlington Street, Winnipeg)

From 1904 to 1970, this block on Preston between Arlington and Evanson was the site of the Salvation Army’s Grace Hospital. The site was acquired and the first building was opened in May 1906. A School of Nursing was established that same year. Additions were made to the original building through the years. After the hospital moved to its present St. James site in 1967, the old building was partially demolished in 1974. The last of the additions, an obstetrical wing opened in May 1959, was demolished between September and October 2014.
