PRINT WAS REMOVED FROM ST. MICHAEL'S HOSPITAL BEFORE THE HOSPITAL WAS DEMOLISHED IN 1996. FOR MORE HISTORY ON HOSPITAL SEE P19960116001-GA. *UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING THOSE RECOVERED FROM ST. MICHAEL’S HOSPITAL PRIOR TO ITS DEMOLITION IN 1996. NO NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC ARTIFACT WAS FOUND, BUT THE FOLLOWING HISTORY OF THE HOSPITAL WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM THE GALT ARCHIVES, ARCHIVES CANADA ONLINE, AND RECORD P19960116001. ST. MICHAEL'S GENERAL HOSPITAL WAS FOUNDED IN LETHBRIDGE BY CATHOLIC SISTERS OF ST. MARTHA OF ANTIGONISH IN MAY 1929. THE FACILITY OF THE PRIVATELY-OWNED VAN HAARLEM HOSPITAL (1224 - 7TH AVE S.), ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE 27 PATIENTS, WAS PURCHASED FOR $34000. A SMALL HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET SERVED AS A RESIDENCE FOR THE SISTERS, WITH ONE ROOM FURNISHED AS A CHAPEL. A HOSPITAL BOARD WAS FORMED, CONSISTING OF THE PARISH PRIEST AND SIX LOCAL BUSINESSMEN. IN COOPERATION WITH THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE, THE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW MODERN 100-BED HOSPITAL STARTED IN 1930. HENRY WILLIAM MEECH WAS THE ARCHITECT FOR THE PROJECT. THE NEW BUILDING OPENED AT 9TH AVENUE AND 13TH ST SOUTH IN SEPTEMBER 1931. THE NEWLY NAMED ST. MICHAEL’S GENERAL HOSPITAL WAS NOW ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE 100 PATIENTS, AND THE ORIGINAL GROUP OF DOCTORS INCLUDED D.A. MCNALLY, W.S. GALBRAITH, P.M. CAMPBELL, R. SHILLINGTON, G.W. LEECH, D. WOODCOCK, G.L. CONNOR, W. BRIANS, L.A. ROY, G. SPACKMAN, J.S. WRAY, B.O. FOWLER, J.E. LOVERING, F.W. SWANCESKY, D.A. TAYLOR, BRAITHWAITH, J.K. BIGELOW, AND A.A. HAIG. THE HOSPITAL CONTAINED CHILDREN'S, YOUTH AND PSYCHIATRIC WARDS, FOUR OPERATING ROOMS, A CHAPEL AND A SPECIAL WARD FOR CASUALTIES OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR AND THE P.O.W. CAMP. IN 1932 THE HOSPITAL OBTAINED ACCREDITATION UNDER THE HOSPITAL STANDARDIZATION PROGRAM OF THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF SURGEONS. AFTER THE SECOND WORLD WAR THE HOSPITAL WAS EXPANDED WITH AN 83-BED EAST WING, OPENING IN 1951. IN THE 1953, THE HOSPITAL RECEIVED A NEW NURSES' RESIDENCE AND THE SCHOOL OF NURSING; THE SCHOOL TRAINED OVER 500 NURSES OVER THE NEXT TWENTY YEARS. IN 1965 ANOTHER EXPANSION WING EXTENDED THE HOSPITAL’S CAPACITY TO 207 BEDS. THE SCHOOL OF NURSING CLOSED IN 1973, AND THE REMAINING SISTERS OF ST. MARTHA STILL WORKING IN THE HOSPITAL LIVED IN THE VACATED STUDENT RESIDENCES. IN 1984 OWNERSHIP OF THE HOSPITAL WAS TAKEN OVER BY THE ALBERTA CATHOLIC HOSPITAL FOUNDATION. IN 1986 FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES BEGAN TO APPEAR AND EVENTAULLY RESULTED IN THE HOSPITAL BEING CONVERTED TO ST. MICHAEL'S HEALTH CENTRE IN 1992, FOCUSING ON THE NEEDS OF LONG TERM PATIENTS. FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES CONTINUED UNTIL THE HOSPITAL WAS CLOSED IN 1995. ST. MICHAEL’S HOSPITAL WAS DEMOLISHED IN 1996. AT THE TIME OF THE 2014 SURVEY, THE FORMER HOSPITAL SITE HOUSED THE ST. THERESE VILLA, A LONGTERM NURSING CARE FACILITY, AND THE ST. MICHAEL'S HEALTH CENTRE, A MULTI-PURPOSE REHABILITATION, PALLATIVE AND CONTINUING CARE FACILITY, BOTH CONSTRUCTED IN THE LATE 1990S.

History
PURCHASED FROM ASH TEMPLE LTD. IN CALGARY IN THE 1960S AND WAS USED BY VAN CHRISTOU UNTIL 1987. DR. VAN CHRISTOU WAS BORN AND RAISED IN LETHBRIDGE. HE ATTENDED BOWMAN SCHOOL AND THE LETHBRIDGE COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE. IN 1943 HE BEGAN STUDYING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, AND IN 1948 RECEIVED THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF DENTAL SURGERY. AS A WINNER OF THE PRESTIGIOUS EASTMAN FELLOWSHIP HE COMPLETED 2 YEARS OF GRADUATE STUDY IN NEW YORK IN ORTHODONTICS AND PEDODONTICS. IN 1950 HE RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE TO PRACTICE WITH DR. J.S. STEWART - ONE OF LETHBRIDGE'S FIRST DENTISTS - WHO BECAME HIS MENTOR. THEIR PRACTICE WAS LOCATED IN THE ORIGINAL BIGELOW FOWLER CLINIC BUILDING ON 7TH STREET SOUTH, WHICH WOULD LATER BE PURCHASED BY CHRISTOU AND MAYOR ANDY ANDERSON AND NAMED THE A-C BUILDING - PRESENTLY IT IS THE GLYN STREET PROFESSIONAL BUILDING. WHEN STEWART RETIRED IN 1951, CHRISTOU BOUGHT HIS EQUIPMENT AND "GOOD WILL" FOR $9,000. CHRISTOU USED STEWART'S EQUIPMENT HIS ENTIRE CAREER. DR. CHRISTOU WAS THE ONLY ORTHODONTIST IN LETHBRIDGE FOR 25 OF HIS 37 YEARS OF PRACTICE. PATIENTS CAME TO HIM FROM SOUTHEAST BRITISH COLUMBIA, SASKATCHEWAN AND NORTHERN MONTANA. HE WAS BOOKED AT LEAST A YEAR AND A HALF AHEAD AT ALL TIMES. DR. CHRISTOU'S PHILOSOPHY WAS TO KEEP THINGS SIMPLE. HE DIDN'T BELIEVE IN HIGH OFFICE OVERHEAD, BOTH IN TERMS OF EQUIPMENT AND STAFFING. HE HAD A RECEPTIONIST AND A DENTAL NURSE, WHO HE TRAINED HIMSELF. HE PRIDED HIMSELF ON PERSONALIZED TREATMENT AND HIS EXCELLENT TRAINING HAD EXPOSED HIM TO STATE-OF-THE-ART DENTAL EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES. EARLY ON, HE PURCHASED A CUTTING-EDGE CEPHALOMETER X-RAY MACHINE, THE ONLY ONE OF ITS KIND IN WESTERN CANADA FOR MANY YEARS. DR. CHRISTOU ALSO CUSTOM MADE EQUIPMENT THAT WAS NOT ON THE MARKET, SUCH AS A MOTOR-DRIVEN WATER SUPPLY AND SUCTION UNIT, SUPERIOR TO THOSE DRIVEN BY THE VENTURI-EFFECT. CHRISTOU WAS ALSO AN ACCOMPLISHED ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER, AND THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER ATTEMPTED TO CREATE LINKS BETWEEN ART AND DENTISTRY. FOR EXAMPLE, HE CREATED A STAINED GLASS U OF L CREST (WHICH HE DONATED TO THE UNIVERSITY) WHICH UTILIZED ORTHODONTIC WIRE. ALONG WITH JIM COUSINS HE DESIGNED THE U OF L CREST AND MOTTO "FIAT LUX". HE SERVED ON THE FIRST BOARD OF GOVERNORS AT THE U OF L AND LATER AS CHANCELLOR (1975), AND RECEIVED AN HONORARY DOCTOR OF LAWS DEGREE FROM THE UNIVERSITY. HIS MANY CONTRIBUTIONS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS ALSO INCLUDE: CHAIRMAN OF THE 1958 YMCA MEMBERSHIP DRIVE; PRESIDENT OF THE LETHBRIDGE & DISTRICT DENTAL SOCIETY FOR 1952-53; PRESIDENT OF THE ST. JOHN'S AMBULANCE ASSOCIATION; PRESIDENT OF THE ALLIED ARTS COUNCIL OF LETHBRIDGE; CHAIRMAN OF THE CULTURAL AFFAIRS AND EDUCATION COMMITTEES OF THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE; CHAIRMAN OF THE LETHBRIDGE JUNIOR COLLEGE LIBRARY FUND; AND CANDIDATE FOR CITY COUNCIL IN 1983.

History
DR. VAN CHRISTOU WAS BORN AND RAISED IN LETHBRIDGE. HE ATTENDED BOWMAN SCHOOL AND THE LETHBRIDGE COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE. IN 1943 HE BEGAN STUDYING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, AND IN 1948 RECEIVED THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF DENTAL SURGERY. AS A WINNER OF THE PRESTIGIOUS EASTMAN FELLOWSHIP HE COMPLETED 2 YEARS OF GRADUATE STUDY IN NEW YORK IN ORTHODONTICS AND PEDODONTICS. IN 1950 HE RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE TO PRACTICE WITH DR. J.S. STEWART - ONE OF LETHBRIDGE'S FIRST DENTISTS - WHO BECAME HIS MENTOR. THEIR PRACTICE WAS LOCATED IN THE ORIGINAL BIGELOW FOWLER CLINIC BUILDING ON 7TH STREET SOUTH, WHICH WOULD LATER BE PURCHASED BY CHRISTOU AND MAYOR ANDY ANDERSON AND NAMED THE A-C BUILDING - PRESENTLY IT IS THE GLYN STREET PROFESSIONAL BUILDING. WHEN STEWART RETIRED IN 1951, CHRISTOU BOUGHT HIS EQUIPMENT AND "GOOD WILL" FOR $9,000. CHRISTOU USED STEWART'S EQUIPMENT HIS ENTIRE CAREER. DR. CHRISTOU WAS THE ONLY ORTHODONTIST IN LETHBRIDGE FOR 25 OF HIS 37 YEARS OF PRACTICE. PATIENTS CAME TO HIM FROM SOUTHEAST BRITISH COLUMBIA, SASKATCHEWAN AND NORTHERN MONTANA. HE WAS BOOKED AT LEAST A YEAR AND A HALF AHEAD AT ALL TIMES. DR. CHRISTOU'S PHILOSOPHY WAS TO KEEP THINGS SIMPLE. HE DIDN'T BELIEVE IN HIGH OFFICE OVERHEAD, BOTH IN TERMS OF EQUIPMENT AND STAFFING. HE HAD A RECEPTIONIST AND A DENTAL NURSE, WHO HE TRAINED HIMSELF. HE PRIDED HIMSELF ON PERSONALIZED TREATMENT AND HIS EXCELLENT TRAINING HAD EXPOSED HIM TO STATE-OF-THE-ART DENTAL EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES. EARLY ON, HE PURCHASED A CUTTING-EDGE CEPHALOMETER X-RAY MACHINE, THE ONLY ONE OF ITS KIND IN WESTERN CANADA FOR MANY YEARS. DR. CHRISTOU ALSO CUSTOM MADE EQUIPMENT THAT WAS NOT ON THE MARKET, SUCH AS A MOTOR-DRIVEN WATER SUPPLY AND SUCTION UNIT, SUPERIOR TO THOSE DRIVEN BY THE VENTURI-EFFECT. CHRISTOU WAS ALSO AN ACCOMPLISHED ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER, AND THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER ATTEMPTED TO CREATE LINKS BETWEEN ART AND DENTISTRY. FOR EXAMPLE, HE CREATED A STAINED GLASS U OF L CREST (WHICH HE DONATED TO THE UNIVERSITY) WHICH UTILIZED ORTHODONTIC WIRE. ALONG WITH JIM COUSINS HE DESIGNED THE U OF L CREST AND MOTTO "FIAT LUX". HE SERVED ON THE FIRST BOARD OF GOVERNORS AT THE U OF L AND LATER AS CHANCELLOR (1975), AND RECEIVED AN HONORARY DOCTOR OF LAWS DEGREE FROM THE UNIVERSITY. HIS MANY CONTRIBUTIONS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS ALSO INCLUDE: CHAIRMAN OF THE 1958 YMCA MEMBERSHIP DRIVE; PRESIDENT OF THE LETHBRIDGE & DISTRICT DENTAL SOCIETY FOR 1952-53; PRESIDENT OF THE ST. JOHN'S AMBULANCE ASSOCIATION; PRESIDENT OF THE ALLIED ARTS COUNCIL OF LETHBRIDGE; CHAIRMAN OF THE CULTURAL AFFAIRS AND EDUCATION COMMITTEES OF THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE; CHAIRMAN OF THE LETHBRIDGE JUNIOR COLLEGE LIBRARY FUND; AND CANDIDATE FOR CITY COUNCIL IN 1983.
