Excerpt from The Modern Hospital, Vol. 4: January to June, Inclusive, 1915 HE first problem which presents itself to the architect is to arrange an elastic group plan which may be capable of being built in units and later developed still farther by units. The size, shape, and orientation of the lot is therefore of primary consideration when studying the general group plan. The wings of the ward buildings should, if possible, be planned so as to receive the maximum sunlight from the southeast to the southwest. After carefully studying the lot obtained by the Samaritan Hospital, it was determined that the wings of the ward buildings should face People's avenue, which gives them an almost due southerly exposure, and that no buildings should be built between the ward buildings and People's avenue, in order that light and air would not be oh structed. The first unit to be built is illustrated in heavy line in the block plan which accompanies this arti cle, and the future extension of each unit in dotted line.
