Construction for this 70-bed hospital began in 1911. The hospital treated soldiers returning from overseas for discharge. In 1918, the hospital annex was added to care for men with lingering illnesses.

During the Nike Missile period (1954-1962), this building was converted to a barracks. You can still see caduceus (medical emblem) behind the crossed cannon artillery insignias near the roof.
