VERTICAL HOSPITAL
PLAN IS APPROVED
Roosevelt and Surgeon General
of Navy Confer on $5,000,000
Project.
President Roosevelt has a general
Idea of the type of building he wants
for the new Naval Hospital, although
no decision has been reached yet as
to the location.
Following a conference with Surg.
Gen. Rossiter of the Navy yesterday,
the President said, they have agreed
on what 1s described as a vertical
building rather than the so-called
horizontal type. This would mean a
rather tall central building, >in which
would be located the operating rooms,
kitchens and administration offices,
attached to which would be several
low buildings of the pavilion type
to house patients.
The President explained this ar
rangement would makp it possible in
time of war to add as many wings
as necessary to meet the situation.
The President said it is possible
that architects will be invited to
make a bid for drawing plans some
time in the. near future, despite the
fact that a site has not yet been
agreed on for this proposed $5,000,000
project
