The way the story goes, according to Bethesda Hospital archives, the men that comprised the entirety of the board of Zanesville City Hospital Association were not keeping their promises to raise the money, so a group of "civic-spirited" women essentially told them to stand aside. Within six months, the needed money was raised, a deal and payment plan were set, and a location was purchased. Twenty-four women were selected for a board of managers, with four men as advisory members.

That hospital, first dubbed the Zanesville City Hospital, would eventually become Bethesda Hospital and would serve Zanesville and the surrounding areas for more than 100 years.
