In 1898, four Daughters of Charity founded St. Vincent's Hospital, the city's oldest hospital. Here they are depicted wearing a more modern, metallic version of the very recognizable habits of their day. St. Vincent's Hospital advertises that they are "where babies come from." For our family that is absolutely true. My two daughters and 5 grandchildren were all born there. The hospital has grown and grown over the years, but continues to give the same excellent, compassionate care that it is known for. I live near this hospital and always enjoy seeing the Four Sisters as I pass by.
Thanks to my friend Amy who tells me that this sculpture was done by Birmingham artist Brad Morton.
