History Of Bartlett Regional Hospital

Juneau opened its first hospital when the Sisters of Saint Ann decided to expand their mission to Alaska. The Sisters arrived in Juneau on September 11, 1886, in the pouring rain. According to A Century of Service by Sister Mary Margaret Down, Father J. A. Althoff was at the wharf in Juneau, lantern in hand, to take them to the residence at the foot of Mount Roberts.

“For a sidewalk, two planks were laid on the side of a rough muddy road. There were no vehicles of any sort,” Sister Mary Margaret wrote.

They found a town described by Sen. Ernest Gruening as “a struggling collection of cabins, of log and frame buildings, between which wound unpaved trails hardly recognizable as streets. It was a raw, rugged frontier.”

The Sisters’ purpose was to establish a hospital that was to become the first hospital set up under American control in Alaska.

Two weeks after Sister Mary Zenon, Sister Mary Bon Secours and Sister Mary Victor arrived in Juneau, the three Sisters took in their first patient, Daniel Foster, according to a May 17, 1969, special edition of the Southeast Alaska Empire. The attending physician, Hugh S. Wyman, was a gold miner with medical training, according to the Empire.

When the Treadwell Mine was in operation, there was a separate St. Ann’s Hospital in Douglas. That facility closed in about 1918 and burned in the early 1920s.

The Sisters operated St. Ann’s Hospital in Juneau until March, 1968, when they leased the building to the City and Borough of Juneau for $100 per year.

The Sisters realized that the early sections of the hospital, first constructed in 1913 and 1917, were badly in need of replacement. The sections had an obsolete floor plan, sub-standard fire and safety conditions and inadequate service areas. At that time, the Sisters applied for federal funding to construct a new hospital, but were told the new sections of St. Ann’s did not meet federal regulations and that a new site would be needed in order to obtain Federal construction dollars.

Although the Sisters tried to find a suitable site for rebuilding, the high cost of both the only potential site available and the cost of hospital construction led to the Sisters’ decision in October, 1965, to find others to provide hospital services.

The City and Borough of Juneau gets involved
In 1965 the Borough of Juneau appointed a Greater Juneau Borough Hospital Planning Committee to study the situation and make recommendations to the Assembly. The committee’s recommendations that a new 80-bed hospital be constructed – along with a mental health outpatient facility and examining rooms for visiting specialists to hold clinics were accepted by the city in August, 1966. Hospital plans were later scaled back to a 65-bed facility due to construction costs.

Also in August of that year, the Borough Assembly issued an ordinance asking voters to approve a $1.8 million bond issue for the Borough’s portion of construction costs for a new $4.9 million hospital. The bond issue passed in 1966.

In January, 1967, a 17-acre site at the hospital’s present location was approved. According to the Empire and early hospital records, construction on the new Bartlett Memorial Hospital began on April 7, 1969. The new hospital opened its doors on August 19, 1971. Through the years the building has undergone several remodeling efforts the most recent of which expanded the hospital's Surgical Services Department and the Infusion Therapy and Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation units. In order to facilitate that remodel, the hospital's administrative and business office functions moved into a new Administration Building adjacent to the hospital.

Project 2005 is planned to complete the campus expansion by building a three-story addition to the southwest corner of the existing hospital structure and extensively remodeling several departments once the new wing is completed. The hospital is a dynamic environment where every effort is made to accommodate the patient's needs through efficient design that supports the swift delivery of excellent care.
