The new, model out-patient dispensary building of the Beth Moses Hospital, Brooklyn, one of the member institutions of the United Hospital Fund, was dedicated yesterday afternoon. The ceremonies, under the auspices of the Woman’s Auxiliary of the hospital, were held in the auditorium of the new building. An opportunity was given to members and friends to informally inpect the recently completed building. Mrs. Harry Schlein, president of the Auxiliary, presided. Harry L. Hopkins, director of the New York Tuberculosis and Health Association, and Dr. Samuel J. Levinson, Rabbi of Temple Beth-Eneth, Flatbush were the speakers.

The new building was constructed to meet the rapidly growing needs of the locality. Between 1919 and 1921 the attendance at the out-patient department of the hospital increased 300 per cent. In 1921 the average daily attendance was ten patients. Now it has been increased to 175, and last year there was an aggregate attendance of more than 43,000 patients.
