Break Ground for Jewish Los Angeles Medical Building

Download PDF for this date

With elaborate ceremonies, ground was broken for the erection of a medical building at the sanatorium of the Jewish Consumptive and Ex-Patients’ Relief Association, Los Angeles.

The building is being erected as a gift from the Warner brothers, who were the pioneers in the talking picture industry. The building, with its equipment, will cost approximately $55,000, or more, and will contain laboratories, X-ray equipment, heliotherapy lamps and other equipment of the latest kind for the study and treatment of tuberculosis. It will also serve as the administration building.
