"The history of the Victoria General Hospital traces the transformation of the institution from its origins as a charity hospital for the sick poor to its modern configuration as an important component of the social service state. In addition to the various intriguing personalities that shaped the hospital's unique character, this study touches upon the relationship of the hospital to the province and other institutions (such as the Dalhousie Medical School), the changing nature of medical care and nursing, and the impact of both hospital expansion and technological change upon the kind of services the Victoria General provides to the public." from the dj.
