Grant County Hospital – Silver City NM

Description

"W.P. A. funds matched by special bonds were approved [in 1936] to build a facility to house the hospital on donated land. The Town Council authorized Dr. Randolph Watts to travel to St. Louis and ask Mr. William Swift to donate land he owned."

"A new 25-bed facility was completed [1937] on several acres located near Highway 180 and Juniper Street in Silver City utilizing the W.P. A. program. At that time, it was renamed Swift Memorial Hospital. "
