Title: Treating Arthritis
Original caption: Nooks and Crannies.
Just a glimpse is given above of the hydrotherapy Department installed ground floor of the Norman Wilson Memorial Infirmary last winter.
The number of arthritic patients and those presenting general orthopaedic problems is increasing steadily. Unlike most polio at Warm Springs these people require hospitalization, dietetic and special nursing care. A large cottage adjoining the Infirmary is now being remodeled as an infirmary annex. This will provide ten additional beds.
