Title: New TB unit opens today

Caption: "New TB unit opens today--Kings County Hospital's $8,000,000 tuberculosis building--regarded as one of the most modern structures of its kind in the world--receives its first patients today, with some 350 tuberculars now in the old Winthrop St. unit and in regular medical wards being scheduled for eventual shift to the new quarters. Located at Clarkson Ave. and E. 37th St., the 10-story building has facilities for 750 patients. Lack of nurses and other personnel is delaying full capacity use of the new TB unit."
