Hôpital de Niort

  • AUMONERIE-ST-JACQUES--Plan-Historique-de-Niort--XIe-XVIIIe-s

This site has always had a hospitable vocation since the Middle Ages:
- The secular chaplaincy of Saint James from 1204 to 1681 for the reception of pilgrims, the poor and the sick outside the city walls.
- The General Hospital from 1665 to combat begging by locking up beggars.
- The Georges Renon hospital (*) built from 1924 to 44 and the second hospital in France at the time because of its modern dimensions and equipment.
(*) Chirugien, professor and renovator of the hospital of Niort from 1905 to 42.

The new hospital, opened in 1983, is today the first employer of Deux-Sèvres.

You are currently in the courtyard of the cloister of the former convent of the Daughters of Wisdom, managers of the establishment from 1729 to 1977!
