The equipment and facilities for a memorial hospital in honor of David Gusik, late director of the Joint Distribution Committee in Poland, is being sent to Peterswalde where the hospital will be set up, Arthur D. Greenleigh, director of the J.D.C. in France, announced today.

The equipment for the Guzik Hospital, which will have a 100-bed capacity, is part of a shipment of 500 beds and other medical supplies and facilities which will be allotted to a number of existing hospitals in Poland. The medical supplies, modern equipment, and a medical library for the Gusik Hospital, are being sent from a U.S. Army depot at Miramas, in southern France.
