Alex Goes to Baptist Hospital -- New Orleans, 1944

We’re not sure why Allison went to the hospital in his seventieth year; we do know that he lived for another twenty. Southern Baptist Hospital opened at Napoleon Avenue and Magnolia Street in 1926. After decades of service, major renovations, and some definite ups & downs—not the least of which was the devastation caused by the post-Katrina flood—the institution was purchased by the Ochsner Health System. The original building, shown in this photograph, is scheduled to reopen as a Senior Living Center in 2013.
