The old Sacred Heart Hospital
This is the old Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, Florida. Even though they built a new hospital in 1965, this building still stands and is used for other purposes.
I was born in this building and it was a part of my life for as long as it served as a hospital. As a child, I was mystified by the architecture. My mother worked there as a nurse in my very early years and later she managed the pharmacy on the first floor. I made several trips over the years to the Emergency Room. And I had a tonsilectomy and appendectomy there.
I am proud to see such a stately building still standing and being used for worthwhile purposes.
