Description

View of Herman Kiefer Hospital facilities in Detroit, MI, designed by Albert Kahn and completed c. 1922. "In 1921, voters signed off on a $3 million dollar bond to expand Kiefer, and Albert Kahn was hired to design the pavilions 6 and 7 and a modern powerhouse. These facilities were finished in 1922. The main building of the complex today was opened in December 1928. This gave the hospital 1,265 beds across its six pavilions and the main hospital building,"--HKH entry from Historic Detroit website.
