The 1938 Kate Bitting Reynolds Memorial Hospital was the first facility offering comprehensive medical care and professional medical education for African-Americans in Winston-Salem. Prompted by petitions to Mayor W.T. Wilson, William Neal Reynolds and The Duke Endowment provided construction funds and stipulated that it solely serve the African-American community. With more than 100 beds and a school of nursing, the hospital was named for Reynolds's wife, Kate Gertrude Bitting Reynolds, and was affectionately known as the "Katie B." In 1941, Reynolds funded a 90-bed addition, reportedly making it the third largest hospital for African-Americans in the United States. The Katie B. provided outstanding care for 32 years. It was replaced by Reynolds Memorial Hospital in 1970.
