r 5 I S3 3 I I I ( " " a" -"' A "Where It Is '. . ' How rarelr Indeed does one think of a Hospital with anything akin to pleasure! Eren the very thought is sufficient to conjure up In the Im agination the sensation of pain and suffering. And' so, we are wont to look upon the Hospital with aversion and loathing. But this hospital, the new Presbyterian Medical Hospital, ah.! that Is different! Yes, Indeed, very different, radically so, In fact so very different that one catches himself wishing he were 111 that he might .become a patient and . enjoy the advantages of this new place which, strangely enough, Is .called a Hospital And be It understood that "enjoy" Is the proper word, entirely fitting In describing the situation. Just how proper the word "enjoy" is when applied to this new Presby terian Medical Hospital could not be fully appreciated unless you, your self, visit this wonderful place and experience the sensations which be fall one as he enters the institution. Perhaps you were one of the many hundreds who attended the formal opening which took place last Wednesday afternoon and evening. If not, then you will surely enjoy reading of the sensation of one who did attend. But, listen, don't wait until you become ill. but (o rUht now for a tour of inspection of this wondrous plaoe, and then if you should become sick your sufferings cannot hold out such terrors for you, because you will know that there are occasions where sickness can be made a pleasure, yes, very, very pleasant. But, to descend from the ethereal realms of fancy to the material dis cussion of fact, be it known that this new Hospital, which holds no terrors for the unfortunate, is located at the corner of Farnanx and Thirty-fourth streets, where the buildings and beautiful grounds extend more than a full block. It is what has been known as the old Turner residence, which has been purchased by Mr. Robert McClelland, who also owns the old Presbyterian Hospital at 1240 Booth Tenth street. Mr. Mc Clelland has had years and years oi experience in the hospital field and this together with the fact that he Is a progressive man of esthetic taste and fine Judgment led him to con ceive the new hospital. His aim has been to 'create a Hospital so differ ent from the old, cold, formidable white enamel and glass hospital, so emphatically different that it would appeal to the senses rather than to repel. His ambition has been to THE NEW PRESBYTERIAN MEDICAL HOSPITAL Hospital Where- Almost a Pleasure build a Hospital so pleasant, so com fortable, so quiet, homelike, and en ticingly delightful that patients would come In joy rather than In sorrow. And has he succeeded, has be attained his ambitions? Well but wait, read of the sensations of one who visited the New Hospital, and then you'll know. Come, we'll make this trip together; we'll go through this pretty place. To begin with, we don't enter from Far nam street as of old. No, the main entrance has been changed around to the Thirty-fourth street side for, although the building Is ever so far back from the street. Mr. McClelland wished no direct noise coming In from the busy Farnam thoroughfare. Bo we enter from the Thirty-fourth street side, up a bright, new concrete walk we go, approach ing an elaborate new entrance, broad steps with pillars and shrub bery on either side. We approach a broad. Inviting door and lift the old fashioned Colonial knocker, but bareiy have we tapped before an at tendant swings wide the door and we are bidden to enter. Once Inside we find ourselves In a richly paneled and elaborately furnished reception hall. My, how rich the furnishings, how subdued the lights with their mellow glow, how quiet and restful! But on we go into the spacious wait ing room which, though formal, Is finished In keeping with the recep tion hall. And soon we are to meet the creator of it all. Here he comes, Mr. McClelland, an elderly, quiet, kindly man who gives us a sincere welcome. Would he show us about the New Hospital T Oh, yes. Indeed, be pleased to. And so the tour begins. First we retrace onr steps through the reception hall and enter the cen tral corridor where there Is a cute, little office where an attendant an swers softly tlnkllnc signal bells. But we don't stop hsrs; we proceed down the broad corridor for a peep Into some of the roams waiting to receive patients. And as we walk along our feet sink deeply Into rich rugs and nothing can be beard save the soul stlrrlng tones of a chime clock re cording the passage of tlma What care we for the hour, we are Intent upon looking Into the guest rooms with their beautiful rugs and drap eries, the Inviting beds with their soft mattresses which look to be two feet thick, the soft tints to the walls, the restful lights, the convenient lava'torlta. and every thing. Boon we come to the end of the corridor where we find a "sta tion" with a trim, little nurse In charge of a desk, and where little electric lights flash out when a pa tient wants for something. And the little nurse flits away as easily and quietly as If she were on wings, and certain It is that she Is an angel of mercy. Just now she Is guided by another little light which has ap peared over the door leading Into one of the rooms. Through this door the nurse disappears and in a mo ment the little door light goes dark, Indicating that the patient Is receiv ing the assistance for which he asked. We must go on. We come to an elevator. No need to wait for an attendant; this Is au automatic electric elevator which runs Itself according as we dlreot It. We enter, close the door, push a but ton, and the machine does our bid ding carefully lifting us to a higher floor. And so we go from one floor to another, and from room to room. We find broad corridors on erery floor, so broad that big, roomy, rest ful chairs, and soft lounges may be placed here and there. And the rooms, goodness how big, and light, and airy every room has outside windows to admit real sunshine. We step to a window and peer through the rich draperies and behold a de lightful view of spacious lawn, grass covered, shrubbery and tree dotted. And so It Is everywhere, every room hss an outside view, and Inside the fittings and furnishings are fit for any King. There are ex pensive chandeliers of richly finished brass wrought into intricate, artistic deetens. The furniture, the wood work, everything is of the best and most pleasing. For convenience there are baths connecting, fitted with built-in tubs, and pedestal wash stands with hot and cold running water. On we o, now, to see the sun par- lor and the open air court on the roof. Here in the sun parlor, en closed on three sides with broad glass windows we find very pleasant surroundings. There Is a piano with niuslo handy, and there Is a small li brary with books If we would read Instead of play. There are comfort able wicker chairs with many cush ions, which may be drawn up in front of a cosys open fireplace on wintry days. The floor Is covered by grass rugs which emit a pleasant odor of grassy fields. If we choose to get really out doors all we need do la step through one pf the many French Aeors aad we find ourselves la an to Be III open-air court from which we may look for miles and miles to the east or to the north. We see the central part of the city with Its ever present cloud of dust and smoke occasioned by the busy business turmoil. And to the north the clear view of hills upon hills as they gradually recede iuto the hasy blue of distant miles. However, we can't tarry here at long as we might wish. We b a vent seen the basement yet, nor the dor mitory of the nurses. Down we go, this time by way of the broad, deeply carpeted stairways. Boon we are far below. We see the sanitary kitchen where expert attendants can prepare foods sufficient to entice the most wary appetite. Then there are com fortable quarters for the servants, dining rooms, and In another section the baths of various kinds. Then we leave the main building and repair to the nurses' dormitory. BJven here the expenstveness of the furnishings and fitting Is surprising. Nothing Is left undone to Insure the comfort and convenience ef the nurses. There's a reading and rauale room, bed rooms with big, roomy closets, bath rooms, and lavatories. And now, our trip of Inspection be ing at last over, we return to the re ception hall by way ef the main cor ridor, surprised at the vastnees of It all because Mr. McClelland has added much to the old Turner residence, more than doubling the space by a large addition, and delighted witlt the sensation of rich splendor for the reason that nothing has been spared to make this Hospital one of luxuri ous surroundings. And with It all we are surprised to learn that the treatment Is no more expensive here than at an or dinary hospital. In fact. It costs muoh less thsn it does to live at a first class hotel. So, considering the richness of it, the pleasure, the calm, quiet, home like surroundings can you wonder that sickness here could hold no ter rors for anyoneT Can you not agree that here illness might be really pleasant? Mr. McClelland states that he wtU continue to operste the old Presby terian Hospital In eon Jo notion with the New Hospital, that surgical cases, and emergency accident rases will be treated at the Old Hospital, and that the New Presbyterian Hospital will be devoted exclusively to providing a pleasant, restful, home-like place for medical and convalescent case.
