Busy days, busy nights at Jefferson Davis Hospital | Bayou City History | a Chron.com blog.

These stark black and white photographs show riveting scenes of conditions at Houston’s segregation-era hospital for African-American residents.

The building was demolished 2 decades ago and a Federal Reserve Bank sits on the site along the shore of Buffalo Bayou south of downtown.

Read Jan de Hartog’s The Hospital to learn more about this facility and the genesis of our current county hospital system.  While conditions have improved, we now have over 1 million uninsured residents in our county.  I don’t think wait times have decreased much.
