It has been 140 years since the Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis in Peoria, Illinois, came to Escanaba on Feb. 12, 1884, to sign an agreement to staff the newly opened Delta County Hospital. Joanna Wilbee-Amis at OSF says the new hospital at the time was a wood-framed structure that was located at 1018 South 13th Street.
