Its interesting. I served at the Philadelphia Naval hospital in the early seventies. It was of a very similar design and architectural style. Actually it opened in 1935 several years before the Bethesda Naval Hospital. It suffered from the same mobility and elevator issues. It was torn down in the 80s and now serves as the administration and training facility for the Philadelphia Eagles football team. Wonder if FDR had a role in it?
