Pre-orders now accepted for the new hospital building
History of the Program: Since 1999, Nantucket Cottage Hospital has honored Nantucket Natives who were born at the hospital with our Wall of Natives. This wall is located outside The Birthplace and includes bricks engraved with the native's name and date of birth. For a $100 donation, the bricks have been a beloved ritual for many island families with new babies.
Future of the Program: The bricks in the current hospital are unable to be relocated to the new hospital building which is expected to open in 2018. However, all Nantucket Natives who have a brick in the current building will be acknowledged in the new building in a new way, such as a tile wall or etched glass plaque. Until the new building is complete, we will accept pre-orders for new additions but their names will not be displayed until the new building opens.
