My dad worked for the ACL Railroad in the late 40's until he retired in the late 70's. When we were children and insurance was not provided by the railroad co. we went to a clinic held at this hospital. It was a large room with a very large counter and there were people being seen at the same time. There was no privacy. I remember as a little girl hating to go because there were seldom any women present. I had my tonsils out in this hospital when I was five years of age and I remember the room had two beds with white sheets. The frames were metal and there was a brown metal chair with some leather covering in the corner by the light switch. It was a very bare bones and plain as best I remember. My mother had a vein stripped from her leg in this hospial and it was sort of a crude procedure. Nonetheless we all survived and were grateful for company provided medical care. Sometime during the 60's this was converted into a nursing home and went under the name Guardian Care. It was torn down not many years later.
