Estimated That Both Hospitals
Be Able to Treat 20,000
Patients Yearly


COST OVER $3,000,00

With the completion and opening of
the new University Hospital comes
the end of a development that has ex-
tended over a period of more than
five years, and has absorbed the in-
terest and energy of a large number
of the University officials and em-
The entire cost of the.building has
been roughly estimated at about $3,-
600,000, over three times the cost of
the Medical and Surgical Wards which
were built in 1891, and are the only
two initial units of the University
Hospital still in existence. The first
appropriations for the new building
were made in 1917 and 1919, and work
on the Hospital was started by 1920.
However, the $1,050,000, appropriated
di dnot begin to cover the expenses,
and as a result work was stopped on
the building for over two years.
In June, 1923, work was resumed,
on the hospital and the Administra-
tion Building started. By January
1924, an appropriation of $2,300,000
had been released, which made possi-
ble the completion of the structural
work op the new building. More than
$500,000.00 has been spent on equip-
ment alone which is of the most
modern type.
It is estimated that the combined
old and new hospitals will treat over
20,000 patients every year. Inasmuch
as there still remain certain final fin-
ishing up jobs such as installation of
light fixtures, decorating in some por-
tions, and furnishing with equipment,
there are only 30 patients being cared
for now. Several internes are al-
ready established in their permanent
quarters on the second floor of the
Administration Building. The entire
building will be ready in every detail
for patients within another month.

is well to emphasize the fact that no
