Elizabeth Hayne Society

Elizabeth Hayne Back in 1889, before the discovery of penicillin or the advent of aspirin, Bethesda began serving the St. Louis community by providing care to those unable to care for themselves. Mrs. Elizabeth Hayne opened the Bethesda Home for the Aged with her husband, Roger Hayne, and their friend, Dr. Edward Saunders. They cared for abandoned infants, unwed mothers, and elderly women suffering from the devastating ailments of the day. Mrs. Hayne went on to serve as Bethesda’s first President, a role she later revisited at the age of 84.
