General Layout, New Power Plant for Charity Hospital

Dr. E. S. Lewis, Vice-President of the Charity Hospital Board of Administrators, noted in his section of the report:

[Erection] of a larger power plant is imperative and of absolute necessity. Our Chief Engineer informs us that the boilers are old and entirely inadequate for the work to be done, and the power-house too small to increase the boiler capacity.

The recent purchase of two-thirds of a square in the rear of the Hospital will furnish the ground for the erection of a larger power plant, and funds permitting in the near future, let us hope, of an electro power plant, refrigerating plant, workshop, laundry and crematory; necessary adjuncts of a great hospital.
