Why are Hospital Names: St. Mary, St. Joseph's, St Michaels, Lourdes...

St.Vincent's Beth Israel, and so on. They all sound like names of Angels. Not that I mind, just haven't figured it out!
I always wanted to ask that question but never got around to it. I am sure there is a logical explanation. Thanks

  • I think it's because a lot of them were started by nuns originally.
