The old Longwood Hospital, January, 2008
I was born at the Longwood Hospital on South Huntington avenue, so part of my interest in the institutions of the area is personal. I knew that the Longwood had closed, but I didn't know exactly when, and I didn't know what happened to the property. A little more refined searching has given me an answer. Apparently, the Longwood was the renamed Vincent hospital, already discussed here. I was led to this knowledge by the minutes of a meeting of the Jamaica Pond Association shown here.
The new facility , under constructing as shown above, will host a home for cancer patients who come to Boston for treatment, under the auspices of the American Cancer Society.
Isn't the internet cool? Now I know, once more, exactly where I was born. Can you say you were actually born in JP?
