The work in Jhansi began when Dr. Ernst returned to India in 1897. An agreement was made between Dr. Hoyt and the mission, which was signed June 17, 1899. Dr. Hoyt acquiesced in the selection of Jhansi, but further stipulated that the hospital should be for the benefit of "women and children of native blood only," and that it be named the Mary S. Ackerman Hoyt Memorial Hospital.
Dr. Hoyt made generous provision in his will for the continuous support and upkeep of hospital. Added to the buildings, provided are quarters for staff nurses, nurses in training, Indian doctors, a male ward and across the road, the missionaries' bungalow. All of these are integral parts of Ackerman-Hoyt Hospital as it serves today through the names of the two sisters.
The hospital has served the local residents of Jhansi and nearby districts of Bundlelkhand Region since 1899.
