RED CROSS A GREAT BENEFACTOR COLORED HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION ORGANIZED
AN INSTITUTION THAT HAS SHELTERED AND CARED FOR MANY COLORED SUFFERERS GOOD WORK STILL GOING ON
The old saying, "Tis an ill wind that blows no one good" is coming true. The colored population of Tulsa will always remember with gratitude and thanksgiving the fact that nothing has been left undone by the Red Cross to heal the wounds of the sick and maimed following the June riot. The best surgical, medical and nursing case has been provided every riot sufferer and no expense has been spared in caring for the sick whose homes were burned and where home (?)ome provisions for caring for sick people were limited.
When it became necessary for the Red cross to vacate the hospital at the Booker T. Washington School, the colored people were quick to respond to a suggestion made by the Red Cross that a new hospital be erected on a co-opeative plan whereby the Red Cross would furnish all the material necessary for a hospital building if the colored people, thru Central Relief Committee, would furnish the labor. With surprising swiftness, a thirty-bed hospital was built and equipped with every essential for scientific surgical care and treatment of the sick. The hospital building is located at 324 North Hartford on the site of the old Dunbar School. It has one large surgical ward for men, a surgical ward for women, a maternity ward a general medical woman's ward, dining room, kitchen, bath, linen closets, and best of all a thoroughly modern operating room, fully equiped. A large porch running the full length of the building on the east provides ample space for convalescent patients during the sunshiny days, and a like porch on the south side answers the same purpose during the chilly days. Two convalescent tents have been equipped for ambulatory patients. Likewise a tent for tuberculars is provided on the grounds.
Up to the present time, the Red Cross has conducted this hospital as a riot relief proposition. It has served its purpose so well that the institution has become indispensable. It has been the desire of the Red Cross Committee, County Officials and Mr. Willows particularly, for the Red Cross to leave a permanent institution for the care of the sick and wounded in Tulsa to the colored people as their own institution.
HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION FORMED
The first steps have been taken to form a Colored Hospital Association, which will be organized and incorporated under State laws. This association would be directed by a board of representative colored citizens with an advisory board of a small number of interested citizens. There will be in addition to the board of white directors, a Woman's Auxiliary made up of representative colored woman and organized in such fashion that every colored woman in the district can become identified with the movement. The title to the hospital building and equipment will be turned over to the Colored Hospital Association. The hospital will be generally supervised by Dr. Butler, County Physician, (white) who will have to assist him a staff of colored physicians and surgeons whose services will rotate. Colored nurses will be employed by the Association, and in every sense of the word the institution will be the property, a thoroughly democratic institution, operated, owned and controlled by the colored citizens.
Announcement will be made next week of the personnel of the Board of Directors elected; likewise the (illegible) or personal or (illegible) and gratitude is due the Red Cross for this splendid and adequate provision made.
THE PRESENT STANDARD TO BE MAINTAINED
It is the present intentions of the association to maintain the highest standard hospital care for our people, and we have every assurance from the county officials Red Cross and others that the colored people will be given full support in this new venture.
The suggestion has been unanimous that the hospital be named after the Red Cross Director who has established for the white population of Tulsa a reputation for sympathetic and fair dealing with our people in their time of trouble, sickness and destitution.
