Rhode Island State Sanatorium, Nurses’ Home – Burrillville RI

Description

A long, low, Classical Revival building, originally built to houses the nurses employed by the Sanatorium. Architecturally, it is defined by the slightly projecting central pavilion ornamented with pilasters and a pediment. Like the Sanatorium’s main building, Wallum Lake House, the Nurses’ Building was a PWA project. The architects of the building were Walter F. Fontaine & Sons, of Woonsocket.

The Sanatorium is now the Zambarano Unit of Eleanor Slater Hospital. Built to house tuberculosis patients, it is now occupied by long-term cases requiring intensive care.

    I’m searching information on Manuel Davis, he was sick with tuberculosis from Oct 1934 till his death Mar 27 1935. At the time he was diagnosed be and treated here at the Sanatorium. Not sure if you have any information on him and any possible medical records.
