Beginnings of John C. Lincoln Hospital

Born of the selfless and compassionate services of those individuals
who gave medical, spiritual and other assistance to the sick and needy
in the Sunnyslope area. After the turn of the century, the Desert Mission
grew to be the center of these services as well as the center for social,
cultural, and recreational activities.

Construction began in 1927 and was completed in 1930. The
Mission then consisted of nine buildings and other structures. Fire
destroyed most of the original buildings on March 6 1942. It was not
rebuilt. However, from those ashes grew John C. Lincoln Hospital and
the Desert Mission of today. The spirit of those pioneers lives on in
their work.
