Did you know? (Sunday, April 21, 2024)

Bishop Enos Nuttall was particularly concerned with the reduction of urban poverty, so, in 1900, he founded The Kingston Charity Organisation. During his tenure, there were also important inputs in health, advanced especially by Deaconesses introduced into Jamaica in the 1890s. The training of nurses and midwives was followed by the establishment of a Nurses’ Union, and the Nuttall Nursing Home. Nuttall Hospital which observed 100 years in 2023, was built in 1923 in memory of Enos Nuttall. This spiritual leader and nation-builder is remembered particularly for his role in spearheading the rebuilding programme in Kingston following the devastation of the 1907 earthquake.
