Historical note The Women's Guild of Christ Church Cathedral established the Protestant Infirmary in 1888, originally housed at 333 Short Street, Lexington, Ky., the former H.H. Gratz property. In 1890, the Infirmary Board began a Nursing School, which operated through 1971. In 1899, the hospital was renamed Good Samaritan Hospital, becoming a corporation, and the Board of Governors was restructured, comprising representatives of six local Protestant churches. In 1905, after a capital campaign spearheaded by Christ Church member George Weeks, the corporation purchased property at 310 South Limestone street from W.H. McCorkle, formerly the James O. Harrison estate. In 1924, the Methodist Church took over management of the hospital and in 1982, the Good Samaritan Foundation, Inc., was established. In 1995, the Board of Trustees sold the hospital to the Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corporation. In 2007, it was purchased by the University of Kentucky HealthCare. George S. Weeks was a banker and fundraiser in Lexington, Kentucky. He was born in Paris, Kentucky, in May 1869, where his father was rector at St. Peter's Church. He served as Vice President of Second National Bank of Lexington and Manager of Lexington Clearing House Association. He lost his sight at age 60. UK HealthCare. About Good Samaritan Hospital.
