DescriptionPostcard of the Lakeside Hospital
Historical ArticleThe old Lakeside Hospital at 2801 Flora, overlooking Troost lake from the southeast side, is pictured on a post card published in the early 1930s by Curt Teich & Co., Inc., of Chicago.

The 3-story red brick building, with white painted verandas on all floors on the north side and enclosed glass sun parlors on east and west, was designed by architects Archer & Gloyd.

A Journal Post story of April 6, 1924, at the time of construction, stated: In the design, which is of Colonial style, a home-like feeling will be carried out by the use of warm colors and residential detail.

The hospital was founded by Dr. George J. Conley, an osteopathic physician.

Lakeside moved in 1964 to a new 167-bed facility at 8701 Troost. The old building by the lake is in the process of being razed.
