Hassler Health Home – Redwood City CA


This was originally a tuberculosis sanitarium.

New Deal workers constructed a: New kitchen and dining building, ward buildings (2), children’s building, doctors’ and nurses’ residences, improved sewage system, new water tank and incinerator.

The sanitarium was purchased by the MROSD in 1983, however, and “two years later all the hospital buildings were torn down and the site is now being reclaimed by nature.”

    My grandmother was a patient at Hassler’s and my mother’s step mother and father were employees of Hassler’s.
    My sisters and I are are gathering family history documents and would appreciate any leads to the patient history archives or employee archives during the time of the early 20’s through the mid 60’s.
    Any leads for research would be helpful.

      Wish we could help but you may need to contact the Hassler Home directly.

  3. Christine b Williams- were you able to locate any records? I believe My grandmother was there for 5 years. I’ve been hoping to locate info.

  4. My father was a TB patient there around1948 for 6 months as a 17year old youth. He states that there was a missile site under the hospital ground on an underground rail system. Does anyone know more about this?

    My Grandfather Dr. Gerald Fairbairn use to visit patients there back in early 40’s50’s 60’s I use to travel there from next town Belmont with him, was an old building then.

    Did your grandfather have a family practice in Belmont. I had a Dr. Fairbairn as an inpatient in a children’s facility in Belmont early 1960’s. The facility was connected to his office. He was also our family Dr. until he passed away.
