Fourteen hospitals served the 300,000 Saint Louis residents in the early years of the Alexian Brothers. Catholic congregations would begin and conduct seven of them. The Alexians opened the fourth hospital under Catholic auspices in the city. Today, St. Alexius maintains a Catholic Identity.
Shortly after the American Civil War, many individuals urged the Alexian Brothers at their headquarters in Aachen, Germany, to open a hospital in the United States. The Franciscan Sisters in the neighborhood, who had begun an American mission seconded the suggestion. On December 12, 1865 Brother Bonaventure received his commission as “Rector of America”.
