Bath-VA-hospitalBath V.A. hospital
The Public Works Administration funded the construction of the Bath V.A. Hospital in Bath NY.
Created as the hospital for Bath V.A., replacing the 1870s facility at what had been the New York State Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home. The oldest resident Civil War veteran broke the ground in 1936. The hospital was dedicated May 12, 1938 with 409 beds and two operating rooms. This is still the hospital for what is now the Bath VA Medical Center.
