New Hospital at Chanute Air Force Base.—
The new 200-bed U. S. Air Force Hospital at Chanute Air Force Base, Ill., was formally dedicated on March 2. The program featured addresses by Gen. Nathan F. Twining, U. S. A. F. chief of staff, and Major Gen. Dan C. Ogle, Air Force surgeon general.The design of the hospital will permit expansion to add another 100 beds. Built at a cost of about 4 million dollars, it contains the most modern equipment, including air conditioning. Its professional staff includes many of the specialties not usually found at an Air Force hospital, such as orthopedic surgery, dermatology, and urology, and there is a flight surgeon's clinic. The building replaces a World War II cantonment-type hospital built in 1941. Col. Andres G. Oliver is in command of the new hospital.
