General Hospital (former) – Battle Creek MI

Description

Battle Creek’s six-story Y-shaped former General Hospital building was completed as part of a large Public Works Administration (P.W.A.)-sponsored project. The P.W.A. supplied a $300,000 loan for the project, whose total cost was $316,882. Work occurred between Nov. 1936 and Aug. 1938.

The building, which has since been enlarged, presently serves as the West Brook Place housing complex.
