In February 1897, Dr. Aaron McDuffie Moore was either invited or applied to become the superintendent of the Eastern Hospital for the Insane in Goldsboro, N.C. The hospital was a state-funded Black hospital established in 1880. Around the same time, Moore and John Merrick began a campaign of social pressure, fundraising, and statesmanship to create another Black hospital for the Hayti neighborhood. Their campaign was successful and resulted in the opening of Lincoln Hospital in August 1901 and the Lincoln Hospital School of Nursing in 1903. The chapter details the location, services, and those involved in the early years of Lincoln Hospital and its nursing school. With the establishment of a Black hospital in Durham that Moore oversaw, he and the family moved into town.
