St. Joseph’s Nursing Home resides in the small town Brinkley. St. Joseph’s is attached to the old Gazzola Mercy Hospital that opened in the late 40s. In 1968 the nursing home was dedicated to The Olivetan Benedictine Sisters Holy Angels because they conducted and founded the hospital in the early 50s.
Inside the old nursing home today, you can still find old beds, wheelchairs, and even a record book at the front lobby of every patient that came through the building up until 2001 When the facility officially shut their doors.
