New Building, 1965

New Building, 1965
The new St. Vincent's opened in 1965. It was a grand occasion according to the Cleveland Press.

"Cleveland's newest hospital will be opened for a week of public tours starting Sunday. St. Vincent Charity Hospital's ultramodern $5,000,000 building faces E. 22nd St. between Central and Scovill Aves. The gently curved, seven-story structure stands in marked contrast to the modest red brick building whose doors were opened to wounded Civil War solders 100 years ago. Centennial year observances will include formal dedication by Coadjutor Bishop Clarence G. Issenmann Sept. 6 and a civic luncheon and Centennial Ball Oct. 7. Interior decorations and equipping of the new building is being completed this week. Patients will be moved in Aug. 21."
