Expanding Martha Jefferson Hospital

On this day in 1973, Rip Payne photographed the recently begun construction to expand the Locust Avenue campus of Martha Jefferson Hospital.  Martha Jefferson Hospital was founded in 1903 by eight local physicians, and has grown tremendously over the past century.  Just a few short weeks ago, the hospital moved from their original location on Locust Avenue (as seen below) to their new location in Pantops.
