Proud 1950 St Paul maternity ward alum. Very hot, no A/C I’ve been told a thousand times. I don’t remember it.

Hello looking for information on the hospital/clinic that used to be in old East Dallas at the corner of Abrams and Glasgow. Thanks for any help
It was the East Dallas Hospital and Clinic which was opened in Dec. 1946 by Dr. W. E. Martin. Its address at the time was 6003 Victor. There is info about the hospital and a photo in the Dallas Morning News article “New Clinic Sets Opening” (Dec. 15, 1946). If you don’t have access to the DMN archives, email me and I’ll send you a copy of the article. (See the “About/Contact” tab at the top of this page for my email address.) –Paula
Thanks! Great Info. Have a great day
I love these beautiful old buildings. Thank You The reason I am looking for pictures of East Dallas Hospital and Clinic, is that my small townhouse community backs up to what was once the land for the hospital
