Description
The United States Veterans Administration Hospital, located at 13000 Sayre Street in Sylmar was the first Veterans Bureau hospital to be constructed on the Pacific Coast. It consisted of twenty buildings costing approximately $1,500,000 and had one of the finest tubercular institutions in the world. Upon completion, it could accommodated 232 beds, and in case of an emergency, could handle 1,000 cases. The American Legion medical committee headed by Dr. Browning, assisted the Veteran's Bureau in drawing the plans and superintending the work. The hospital stood until the earthquake on Feb. 9, 1971, when it collapsed. The site is now a tree-shaded park with a view of Pacoima Canyon and a plaque memorializing the quake's 65 dead.
Photograph caption dated December 15, 1962 reads, "You have bingo, says Mrs. Ralph Howell to R. M. Hardin, right. At left is Arthur Rosche." Members of the North Hollywood Junior Woman's Club throw a party for veterans at the Veterans Administration Hospital.; See images #00116968 through #00116971 for all photos in this series.
