Hospital expansion - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," is of what is now AdventHealth Hinsdale Hospital. "A 17-room addition was added to the existing home, and the Hinsdale Sanitarium opened in 1905. A healthy mind, physical therapy, diet and spiritual well-being were considered vital to the healing process. The sanitarium's tranquil setting provided an ideal atmosphere for this approach. Families were encouraged to participate in treatment and often camped on the grounds."
