History & Architecture

Whisler Hall Memorial Hospital, built in 1929, was a gift from Mr. & Mrs. Charles F. Whisler in memory of their daughter, Helen Arnett Whisler, a member of the class of 1920 who died in her sophomore year of tuberculosis. Now known simply as Whisler Hall (and not an official hospital), it continues to serve as the home of Denison health and wellness, providing confidential, evidence-based primary care, counseling services, 24/7 RN triage and urgent care, as well as 24/7 observation beds.

East Residential Quad
Denison is one of very few colleges of its size that provides 24-7 care during the academic year. Whisler’s staff includes a medical director, 2 nurse practitioners, three full-time and several part-time RNs, and four counselors.
