(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

A million dollar building program to provide extensive additions to the Sanatorium of the Jewish Consumptives’ Relief Society, will be the chief topic of discussion at the thirty-third annual convention of the Society to be held in Athantic City, May 21-23. Several hundred delegates representing contributors to the Society throughout the country, are expected to attend.

The chief expenditure on the building program is $350,000 with which to erect a building for women patients, planned to accommodate 100.

The sum of $150,000 was allotted to erect a pavilion for tubercular children. The proposed pavilion will accommodate 50 children.

The research department of the Sanatorium will be enlarged by the erection of a $40,000 building, which will also house the medical library of the institution. The building program will extend the capacity of the Institution to 400 patients which will necessitate an enlargement of the dining room and kitchen, at a cost of $40,000 and the building of an addition to the nurse home at a cost of $50,000.
