New Book Available by Sr Michel Keenan, IHM

Sister Michel Keenan published the story of St. Joseph’s/Marian Community Hospital, Carbondale, Pa, from its beginnings in 1925, noting the challenges for the Scranton IHM Sisters to build outstanding healthcare and nursing education for the region. It speaks to the foresight of planners who saw the need for the education of IHM sisters who would serve as administrators, nurses, lab technicians, and in other specialized roles. IHM sisters planned and oversaw the building of St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marian Hall Nursing School, St. Joseph’s Convent and the addition to the patient tower. One cannot help but feel the IHM charism still alive on that spot.
