Fergus Falls Journal November 21, 1895 ‘The Hospital’Published 10:28am Monday, May 7, 2012
No state in the union has provided more generously for its wards and unfortunates than Minnesota. Its splendid educational facilities are supplemented by institutions for caring for the deaf, the dumb, the blind, the defective, the indigent, the insane, and are all cared for in the most perfect institutions which money can secure.
Of the 15 or more public institutions in the state, the greatest and the most complete, the most perfectly constructed, is the state hospital for the insane in Fergus Falls. The St Peter and Rochester hospitals contain more patients, but the Fergus Falls hospital is not yet completed. The hospital here is a more model institution, for that reason it was built as a whole while the hospitals elsewhere have been a succession of additions to meet contingencies which it was never expected would arise.Tags: Regional Treatment Center
