Hospital Buildings and Boiler House

The red brick chimney of the hospital’s boiler house can be seen for miles around Heart Mountain. The 150-bed hospital complex once consisted of 17 wings connected by a long corridor. Today, only three buildings remain. Staffed by Japanese American doctors and a primarily white group of nurses, the hospital satisfied nearly all of the camp’s medical needs, including the delivery of 556 babies. Visitors can explore the hospital grounds, but are encouraged to be mindful of tripping hazards and wildlife in the area.
