Default St. Albans Hospital, Oct. 1958

My father was a Naval Officer / Patient there during the summer or fall of 1958 -- met with a rather tragic ending -- but would love to know if anyone remembers him, thanks: William E. Taylor

The St. Albans Naval Hospital in Queens is standing, but not strong enough. They want to knock it down for condos. They want to bring in 6000 residence in to a already crowded community. In this day no one cares about the history of this hospital. So very sad. The community is fighting to stop it, but money speaks louder.

I was stationed there in 1973-1974 and worked in orthopedics floor as a hospital corpsman. Amazing care was given there. I saw my first use of sterile maggots used there to clean up gas gang green on those that returned from viet nam.

I was at the Naval Hospital Pensacola during the early to mid 60s and knew an anesthesiologist named Jerome (Jerry) Modell who came from St. Albans.

it was center for thoracic surgery for navy on east coast, so we did lots of lung operations, open heart surgery. was a very well run, good hospital.
