THE NEW TRIPLER HOSPITAL
One of the most extensive construction projects ever undertaken in Hawaii is the new 1,500 bed U. S. Army Tripler General Hospital located at Moanalua, Oahu. Situated on the slopes of the Koolau Mountain Range, the hospital will occupy about 365 acres with a magnificent view of the island's southern coastline and thus take full advantage of the prevailing cool mauka winds. The design of the new hospital, the finest in the Army's system, will keep it abreast of the times for years to come. The neuropsychiatric section will be an individual unit where separate recreational, occupational therapy, physical therapy and eating facilities can be provided without the atmosphere common to hospitals caring for patients of this type. Physical reconditioning and recreational facilities have been incorporated here for the first time in a permanent hospital. The pathology department includes an amphitheater seating seventy-five persons
