High up on a hill located on Fuller Road in the North East
section of Ann Arbbr, a huge. new building stands, emptily over-
looking the city and awaiting occupation.
The Veterans Administration Hospital, nine stories high, and
marked at night by its huge red and white smokestack, will be form-
ally dedicated at a special ceremony Sunday.

FIRST PATIENTS have been accelted in one ward this week,
however, according to hospital officials. The new building's capacity
is 500 patients for general medical and surgical care.
At the present time a staff of 50 nurses is employed at the
hospital, with more nurses and doctors being gradually added to
the hospital force as patient-needs require.
Entering the spacious lounge with its ultra-modern furniture and
lighting, one is immediately impressed with the vastness of the build-
ing in which there are an "uncountable number of rooms."

FEATURED IN the streamlined equipment of the hospital, which
is a minature city in itself, is an auditorium complete with a nine-
backdrop stage, rows of footlights, and deluxe camera and movie
facilities. A radio station is also part of the equipment installed for
rehabilitation of the wounded veterans.
For more pensive moments, a chapel has been built, furnished in
soft colors.
MEDICAL equipment instru-
ments found in one wing of the
7. M"" building includes diagnostic X-ray
units and a therapeutic X-ray
unit, the latter used to treat can-
cer and tubercular patients. Re-
search laboratories and a general
