UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER-The main hospital, constructed in 1925, is now almost completely
surrounded by newer units of the huge University Medical Center. At the far left is the Kresge
Medical Research Building (1953); at the rear, the Children's Psychiatric Hospital (1955); and to
the extreme right is the Out-Patient Clinic (1953). The most recent additions to this closely
integrated complex of medical facilities are the School of Nursing, the Pathology Building, and the
Medical Science Building, which connect with the Hospital by a ramp at the center. The Medical.
Science structure houses departments of biological chemistry, and pharmacology, along with the
-medical school executive offices.
