Back when Jerome was the most populous town in the Verde Valley, it also had the only hospital.The Clemenceau Heritage Museum held a Last Friday of the Month event on Feb. 28 featuring three nurses who worked in the Verde Valley in the 1950s. Barbara Evans, Darlene Calvert, and Leonor Nelson, from left, all shared their stories and experiences of how nursing used to be done, as compared to today’s modern technology, and gave a history of the hospital that became the VVMC.

“The only healthcare facility here was in Clemenceau, a room at the smelter,” said Barbara Evans, a nurse who started out in 1955 and worked for decades in Verde Valley.

Evans joined fellow nurses Leonor Nelson and Darlene Calvert on Friday, Feb. 28, at the Clemenceau Heritage Museum to talk about the early days of their careers.

“They are very special women,” said Connie Phillips, treasurer for the museum group. “They’ve all had careers of more than 50 years.”
