2400 Avenue F


Bay City Hospital Opened April 15

Plans have just been completed for the new Bay City hospital. Dr. C. P. Jones has purchased the building at 2408 Ave F of L. G. Schuster, and will at once begin to remodel it. An addition will be built for a modern operating room and office and the interior will be altered so as to have two wards of three or four beds each and three private rooms. This will give accommodations for nine or eleven patients. The doctor states that if conditions warrant it he has made arrangements for the purchase of another building that can be moved and joined to this one and so double the number of patients cared for. The management of the hospital will be entirely under the direction of the superintendent Miss Genevieve T. Sharpless and every physician can bring his patients on exactly the same terms. Dr. Jones wishes the public to understand that except that he has assumed the financial responsibility of the hospital, he has no more connection with it than every other physician in Bay City and Matagorda county. Any patient can come and have the attendance of their own physician, just as in their own home, and can receive visits from friends and relatives at any time during their stay unless their physician forbids it. No contagious diseases will be admitted. The equipment is especially suitable for the care of confinement cases and of surgical cases of the greatest magnitude, as well as non-contagious medical cases. Miss Sharples comes here from the successful management of a similar institution at Vineland, N. J., and says the principle on which success rests is to run a hospital to please the patients, and with the assurance that this principle will be carried out she asks that the public give the Bay City hospital a fair trial.
