Ambulance, Lighting and Power Plant, Assets and Liabilities Report, Tuberculosis Fund, Isolation Building, Children’s Ward


2464 patients treated in the past year. Daily average number of patients 159.3. Cost per patient per week is $12.483. The ambulance responded to 675 calls during the year. A complete inventory was taken for the first time on January 1, 1910 which is accounted for in the Assets and Liabilities Report. There was a decrease in the length of stay of hospital patients which shows the hospital is treating more active cases and fewer chronic cases. A complete lighting and power plant was installed at the hospital, and the laundry was remodeled. The hospital received the balance of the gift to complete the Boardman Administration Building. An additional $300,000 was received from a donor for the Tuberculosis Fund making the total $600,000. In addition to these buildings, the hospital plans to build an Isolation Building paid for by the city and a Children’s Ward provided by the Fitch bequest. A psychopathic clinic is also needed, but not yet in the works. There are new food boxes in the diet kitchen that allows meals to stay warm on the way to the wards.
