Elk Point's First Municipal Hospital

 

The above photo shows Elk Point's first Municipal Hospi­tal, built in 1928. This hospital replaced the downtown hospi­tal which was privately owned by Dr. F. G. Miller and Dr. A. G. Ross. It was an 18‑bed unit heated by steam. Water was drawn from a nearby well.

In 1951, a $180,000 renova­tion was completed, adding an additional 25 beds as well as a much improved operating room and a residence for the nursing staff.

Some of the doctors who worked out of this hospital were: Dr. F. G. Miller, Dr. A. G. Ross, Dr. A. Wiegerinek, Dr. K. C. Miller, Dr. E. D. Bauld, Dr. Sam, Dr. Lorne Jonat, and Dr. Charles An­derson.

Our present hospital had its official opening on October 8, 1976. The old hospital, which was situated immediately to the south of it, was then de­molished to make room for a parking lot. The old hospital served our district from 1928 to 1976, a total of 48 years.
