The Hospital is one hundred and sixty-six feet in front and has a depth of seventy-nine feet.  It has two wards, originally intended one for men and one for women, but owing to the number of sick it is now entirely devoted to men.  Besides the wards there are several rooms used for patients requiring special attention, a dispensary, surgeon's office, reception room, operating room, kitchen and dining-room, bathrooms and closets, all on the first floor, and living rooms for the assistant surgeon and his family on the second floor.
