DescriptionPostcard of the City Hospital
Historical ArticleKansas City's fine new city hospital, completed in 1908 on a hill (later called Hospital Hill) south of downtown Kansas City, succeeded two earlier city hospitals, one in a small frame building at Twenty-second and McCoy streets built in 1870 and a brick structure erected in 1865 at a cost of $5,600.

In charge of the new hospital was the city physician, Dr. St. Elmo Sanders, conscientious humanitarian of Dutch ancestry and a graduate of the old University Medical college here.

Dr. Sander also originated the idea for the Leeds Tuberculosis sanitarium and later founded the old Grace hospital.

The city hospital was the initial unit in what became General hospital complex. Modified and expanded, the unit still is part of General.
