Download PDF for this date

A new $20,000,000 Sinai Hospital was formally dedicated here yesterday. It is one of the largest construction projects of its type ever to be undertaken in Balti more.

Located on a 50-acre tract of land, it includes a general hospital, obstetrical and gynecology building, research building, medical staff building, nurses’ residence, nursing school, auditorium and service building. All buildings are connected by underground corridors and serviced by 16 self-service elevators. All patient areas are air-conditioned, with individual room control.

With the adjacent Mount Pleasant building, which was completed in 1953, the new hospital will provide the city with 483 patient beds. It will also provide accommodations for 194 nursing students and 69 internees and residents, and house 55 research laboratories.
