In 1912 as Henry B. Plant II recuperated from bad car wreck, a group of civic-minded women, began their quest to bring what is now Morton Plant Hospital to life.
On January 1, 1916, the Morton F. Plant Endowed Hospital opens, with 20 beds and five bassinets. Ward beds cost $12 per week; private rooms are $30-$40 per week; charity cases cost $7 per week.
These operating room facilities were built in 1951 as a third floor of the 1941 Building and served the hospital until 1975, when Surgery moved to the basement of the Barnard Building.
