Nantucket Cottage Hospital is a not-for-profit regional medical center located in Nantucket, Massachusetts and is the only hospital on the island. Founded in 1911 and conceived by the visions of Dr. John S. Grouard and Dr. Benjamin Sharp. The original small Cottage Hospital on West Chester Street grew apace with the island community's needs. In 1957, the Hospital opened new facilities at its current site, 57 Prospect Street. In the 1960s, when that building was deemed too small, a wing was added to accommodate the growing need for comprehensive medical care. Nantucket Cottage Hospital is located next to the "Colored Cemetery", where there are 120 markers in the cemetery on Mill Hill, traditionally used for the burial of people of color.
