My grandmother was one of the first patients admitted to the hospital and was the first surgery in the operating room. The surgery did not go as planned as grandmother went into cardiac arrest on the operating table. She was a patient for six months and lived twenty years following release. Dr. H. Featherston named in the clipping was grandmother’s cousin.
