The Bellevue Hospital was established to provide care for mentally ill clients. The establishment of the hospital came out of a petition which was led by a private medical practitioner named Dr. Louis Bowerbank. This led to an enquiry the result of which was the establishment of a mental hospital for the custody and care of the mentally ill. The hospital has had a very rich and colourful history. The hospital has just over seven hundred patients. There are presently twenty three wards; the hospital is divided in acute, sub-acute, psycho-medical, mental subnormal, long stay, psycho geriatric and rehabilitative wards.

Nuttall Memorial Hospital
Address : 6 Caledonia Avenue, Kingston 5, Jamaica
Phone No.: 876-926-2139

The Nuttall Memorial Hospital commemorates the life of Enos Nuttall, a Christian leader of exceptional vision and a great humanitarian. He came to Jamaica from England in 1861 as a nineteen-year old Wesleyan missionary. At that time there was a spiritual awakening in Jamaica known as the Great Revival which affected most Christian denominations. After a few years he offered himself as a candidate for the Church of England and was made rector of St. George’s Church in Kingston in 1866, the year after the Morant Bay Rebellion which resulted in Jamaica becoming a crown colony. The Church of England in Jamaica was de-established in 1870 and the number of ministers reduced from 92 to 52. His leadership qualities, capacity for hard work and Christian zeal were soon recognized and he rose through the ranks of the Anglican Church to become Bishop of Jamaica in 1880 and the first Archbishop of the Province of the West Indies in 1893. His contribution to the educational and social development of Jamaica was monumental.

The Heart Foundation of Jamaica was incorporated in 1971 as a voluntary organization sponsored by the Lions Club of Kingston. A few years before, the health and welfare committee of the Lions Club of Kingston with its members, Professor Mike Wooming, Dr. Jeffery Humfries, Dr. Junior Wong, Dr. Bernard Benjamin and Peter Bangerter felt that something had to be done to help heart patients in Jamaica, and to reduce the high incidence of heart attacks.

Various fundraising efforts took place and, with the regular help, especially financial, a small start was made. The Foundation soon became a member of the International Society and Federation of Cardiology (ISFC), now The World Heart Federation located in Geneva, Switzerland. A part-time secretary was then hired, Mrs. Elenor Grant. A few years later, a Manager Mrs. Jeanne Shearer, was employed and an office was rented at 30 Beechwood Avenue, in Kingston. The Governor General at that time Sir Clifford Campbell was asked to be the Patron.
