Sees New Era
With I WA Aid
State Director Says New
Building Program 'Long
Stride' For Better Care
LANSING, June 28.-()-Dr. Jo-
seph E. Barrett, State hospital direc-
tor, said today he felt Michigan was
entering a new era in "humane and
scientific care of its mental patients."
He described the $11,000,000 hos-
pital building program, being under-
taken under WPA auspices, as "a
long stride." It will provide facili-
ties, he said, for research in the cure
and prevention of mental ailments;
buildings condemned as "fire traps"
will be fireproofed or replaced, and
modern equipment will be provided
for the treatment of patients.
The PWA already has announced
the release of funds for more than
half the program, Dr. Barrett said,
and approval of the rest was ex-
pected quickly. State Budget Direc-
tor Harold D. Smith said his de-
partment was geared to start letting
bid as soon as the PWA regional
office in Chicago gives the word.
Dr. Barrett said the relief of over-
crowding would be an immediate
benefit. He asserted present facili-
ties are overtaxed 20 per cent, with
a waiting list of 2,544 persons who
have been adjudged insane but for
whom there is no room.
19,112 TO BE CARED FOR
The program will add 5,060 to the
hospitals' capacity and give Michi-
gan facilities to house 19,112 mental
patients without overcrowding.
The State Government is contrib-
uting $6,432,000 to the program, the
At the Kalamazoo State Hospital
the program will provide quarters
for 150 patients who also are afflict-
ed with tuberculosis. The wooden
buildings that Dr. Barrett called the
firetraps will be razed. A receiving
' hospital, with modern laboratory fa-
cilties and space for 700 patients,
also will be provided at Kalamazoo
at 'an estimated cost of $1,525,000.
The tuberculosis hospital will cost
upwards of $230,000.
The Pontiac State Hospital also'
will have a modern receiving hos-
pital, to house 300 patients. It will
cost $750,000. A 300-bed hospital
and infirmary will cost $540,000. The
State is financing alone a $111,500

The Ionia Hospital for Criminal
Insane will receive two projects,
each to house 100 men and each to
cost $150,000. One is an addition to
the men's building, the other a new

provements to the State Hospital for

The Wahjamega institution also
will receive a 350-bed unit for adults,
at a cost of $500,000, a $100,000 em-
ployes' dormitory, and a $265,000
power house. The State will spend
$150,000 for other improvements.
The program calls for a $150,000
school and auditorium for feeble-
minded youngsters at the Newberry
State Hospital. Although there are
only 200 children at the institution,
the school will have facilities for 750.
Dr. Barrett explained more children
will be sent to the institution later.
