Unmounted print showing the nurses' sitting room at the Bloomingdale Hospital.
The main buildings designed by James Lord Brown were completed in 1894. The Centre building included an assembly hall, lecture room, medical super office, chapel, and infirmary. There were buildings on each side of the Centre building. One for men and the other for women. All were connected by corridors. A kitchen, laundry, and shop buildings were behind the Centre building. In 1901, the building was expanded to include an ambulance department, dormitories for female staff, and laundry space. In 1920, it was expanded again to include male attendant dining hall. In 1931, medical surgical extensions were added.
The nurses' sitting room was probably in the Bloomingdale Hospital School of Nursing building which was at the end of the main buildings complex. Duplicate with the Westchester Division application form paper is available. Not sure if the nurses are staff or student nurses.
