Old Madison Memorial Hospital

This is a picture of the first Madison Memorial Hospital built in the 1950's. In the 1970's Rexburg and the surrounding areas had outgrown this building and a new hospital was built next to it. This old building then served as an annex building and housed offices for hospital employees. Well, now the Rexburg area has outgrown the 1970's hospital and a new one is in the works. (Or to be added on the 1970's one.) In order to do that the original building must be torn down. That is going to happen in a few more weeks. This building has been my second home for four years. I have spent 14 hours a week working in my office in this building. I moved to a new office this past week. Following is a picture of my old office all packed up and ready to go. I do not have a picture of my new office yet because it is a huge mess right now. But that may come later. Now my office is in the back part of Key Bank. I will stay there for two years until the new hospital is finished and then will move into that. I am not very sentimental about the loss of this building because I have only lived in Rexburg for 6 years. But there are many old timers that have many memories of it and are sad to see it go.

Just think, you'll get to pack up your office again in two years! What fun! Now you have to sort though everything, again!

Susan. When you get a chance I need you to get me a good close-up of the helicopter that lands behind the building on the helipad. I know it's probably not there often but just have your camera ready. That would be cool.

Sam, I would love to get you a picture. The problem is I am not even located at the hosptial for the time being. But I'll keep that in mind for you. And I did dejunk a little but still came to my new office with a lot of stuff. I have to start seeing patients in it tomorrow and it's still not all the way put together.
