Someone sent me this old hospital, wondering if it was in Hancock (Portage forerunner?) Any guesses?

Have a good week :o)

By john mich (Johnofmi) on Monday, January 25, 2016 - 05:09 am:

It is not located in Hancock. It not located in the Keweenaw. Not even in Michigan. It is located in Park City UT. The building, now the Miners Hospital Community Center, is listed on the National Register on Historic Places.

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Monday, January 25, 2016 - 08:01 am:

It has some similarity to the old St. Joseph's Hospital in Hancock, from the same period.

St Joe
This was the forerunner of the current U.P. Health System Portage Hospital where my wife Edie is having an extended stay, actually next door at PortagePointe. As I mentioned last week, she had a mild stroke and is regaining strength, and continuing to see improvement in her eyesight. Our thanks to the staff of PortagePointe for their hospitality, and to our Pasty Cam friends for your encouragement and prayers.

Thank you for the update, Charlie. Our prayers continue for you and Edie and the good folks providing her care.

Have a blessed week, Pasty Camers!

Wow, did I ever do a double-take on the photo! I
recognized it right away as familiar, and it made me
wonder if there was a standard design for miner's
hospitals that was used nationwide. john mich got it
right -- it's the Miner's Hospital in Park City Utah.
In one of its past lives, it was an oddball youth
hostel named The Palace Flophouse. I stayed there for
a week in the spring of 1975 with my high school ski
club.It was right near the base of the Park City ski
area, so it was at least convenient. Luxurious? Not
so much. What fun to see it here on the Pasty Cam!

I've been wondering about Edie. Sorry to hear
she's still laid up. I've heard some great things
about Portage Point, though. My mom is on the
waiting list there, but whenever there's an
opening, she says she's not ready. I'm glad
Edie's getting the care she needs and will pray
that she gets to come home soon.

I'm so glad for the update on Edie. Thanks, Charlie. I've had
relatives at Portage Point too and have heard only favorable

Best wishes to Edie, and to your mother, Deb.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 - 09:23 am:

Thanks, Greta!! I understand wanting to stay in
your own home, but I wish she'd worry a little
more about her safety.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 - 07:34 pm:

I hear you, Deb. It can sure be scary sometimes. Especially from a

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 - 09:27 pm:

Deb, my heart feels for you and your mother. I also understand her wanting to stay home. I understand her feeling brave one moment saying she'll go, but when the time comes it's just too much. So hard.
