Nothing makes you feel old faster than knowing the hospital you were born is, not there. Well, it's there, but was demolished and a newer, younger hospital took its place.
The postcard reads: Good Samaritan is a general hospital owned and operated by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati Ohio. From an original 250 bed hospital, it is now over 450 beds and 75 bassinets. Since its opening in 1932, it is ever growing and expanding its facilities to best meet the needs of the Community.
|Here it is, being demolished|
Gosh I love google - I found this: From Orourke wrecking:
This project included the mass demolition of two wings of an active hospital. A vertical separation was performed utilizing sawing and hand demolition techniques to allow for a smooth transition for the new addition demolished.The project required a floor by floor selective demolition approach along the exterior wall and column bay directly adjacent to the occupied one-story building. This administrative building was less than seven feet from the adjacent five-story building being demolished.
