Excerpt from The Mayor's Message With Accompanying Documents, to the City Council of the City of St. Louis, at Its May SessionUnder the provisions of the ordinance passed at the last session of the Council, the preliminary steps have been taken for the erection of a new city hospital. The proposals received by the Comptroller for the sale of sites have already been submitted, and the plans for the proposed building are completed. Mr. B. R. Singleton, City Architect, under the direction of the City Engineer, visited Cincinnati and inspected the hospital there which is stated to be one of the best in the country, incorporating many important modern improvements and of an extensive character. From the information derived there and from other sources, a design was adopted for a building three stories in height, and arranged on what is known as the pavilion plan, which is believed to possess peculiar features of excellence. The principal necessity in such a building being a thorough sys tem of ventilation, according to this plan, the ventilation of each room and each story is made independent of the balance of the building; the escaping air passing into the smokestack of the furnance and so drawn off by a strong draught. The estimated cost is with a capacity for eight hundred patients; but the plans are so prepared that one-half of the building could be erected, with a corresponding capacity and the remainder built subsequently, without interfering with the general design.These plans will come before your Honorable Body for consideration, and, however it may be thought necessary to modify them, I. Trust that some action will be taken, without delay, towards the extension of our hospital accommoda tions. The present building is entirely inadequate for the needs of the city. The crowded state of the wards sacrifices life by preventing the proper treatment of patients, while it is impossible to admit many fairly entitled to the benefits of such a public institution; and, should an epidemic occur, the condition of the city would be deplorable.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
