Cataldo Ambulance Service greatly values the hard work, dedication and compassionate care that is delivered by their employees to the patients and visitors of Anna Jaques Hospital.
Anna Jaques Hospital
On May 7, 1884 the first patient was admitted to Anna Jaques Hospital. By 1901 the hospital's original building had become inadequate. Plans began to take shape and three years later in 1904 the Georgian Revival building that stands to this day was opened at 25 Highland Avenue in Newburyport. That "new" hospital remains the centerpiece, and proud historic front, of Anna Jaques Hospital today. Although many hospital expansions, and an attractive neighborhood, have grown up around the hospital, the original building stands as a testament to one woman's, and one physician's, commitment to the community and its needs.
