Abstract

The instituting of the Isolation Hospital and the choice of its site showed the wisdom of the board of administrators of the Charity Hospital and its officers, which was amply brought out by subsequent developments and results. The site was an ideal one for the purpose, consisting of a large isolated square of ground, in a very sparsely settled district, containing main and outbuildings well grouped about its center, the nearest inhabited building being fully six hundred feet from any of the hospital buildings. It is worthy of note that no known case of yellow fever occurred within a radius of ten squares of the hospital during the entire epidemic, and but one occurred at that distance before the establishment of the hospital. The ambulance, although quartered at the Isolation Hospital, was under the absolute control of the Board of Health and was maintained by it, all patients being delivered
