St. Mary’s Hospital, 1927 – ca1995

We were reluctant to take on this site, seeing as how it sits adjacent to the Gary police headquarters. In fact, some parts are still used by the department. That reluctance, it seems, is shared by the locals; the hospital’s interior is relatively free of graffiti and vandalism.  Though mostly stripped of appliances that  would be readily recognized as medical,  there was still a lot to see. Here is what appears to be a nurses’ station:
