St. Joseph Hospital. A prominent landmark in the Tacoma skyline is the futuristic design of the new St. Joseph Hospital located at 1718 South I. The round "porthole" windows, "cloverleaf" sections and narrow supporting "legs" were in sharp contrast to the older hospital of the same name, located a block away. There was room for 262 patients and the facility included ten surgeries. Nursing stations were designed to allow one registered nurse to monitor seven patient rooms. St. Joseph would undergo further expansion in the coming years including an outpatient addition. Photograph ordered by Bertrand Goldberg & Associates, Chicago. (TNT 12-12-74, A-2-article)

Completed St. Joseph's Hospital. The uniquely designed hospital was 189 feet tall and 14 stories. Built at a cost of about $13,000,000, the hospital was reportedly the first in the world to use a circular floor design. Walls were ten inches thick and there was enough concrete used in the building construction for five miles of freeway. The hospital was dedicated on December 15, 1974 and accepted its first hospital transfer on January 31, 1975, three weeks later than first scheduled. Photograph ordered by Bertrand Goldberg & Associates, Chicago. (TNT 1-24-74, D-4 article; TNT 12-12-74, A-2-article)
