The plan for the Farnam ward includes: operating theater, accident room, recovery, surgeons consulting and resting room. The seating in the operating theater consists of three tiers in a horse shoe shape and can accommodate seventy people; the ceiling includes a sky light. The board of lady visitors would like to install a piazza for patients. The Hospital received an ambulance as a donation from someone who wanted to remain anonymous in publications. The ambulance donation was very well received after having to rely on the almhouse and police station.
