Description St. Elizabeth Hospital (1st). " …On the ground floor, as the visitor enters, is the reception room on the left, and on the right a complete pharmacy, presided over by a sister who has for years made a study of medicine. There is also a ward for ladies on this floor, as well as the dining room or refectory. On the floor above are several private rooms, men's ward, and the surgical room, where operations are performed, and on the next floor we find more private rooms, as well as those of the sisters, and a beautiful little chapel. The hospital has a complete heating apparatus….In the summer the long corridors running directly through the house permit of perfect ventilation and a constant change of atmosphere."
