Have been searching thru Google images & several forums w/in HAIF w/out much success. In the past the good folkes of the Historic Houston Forum have always come through w/some really good photos of old historical Houston prior to tear down or total abandonment. So as time permits would someone be able to provide some photos or perhaps a link to go & view?

If you haven't tried it yet, you might check out the John P. McGovern Historical Collections and Research Center site - it has a lot of good historic photos and postcards of local healthcare facilities. The U.T. Center for American History has some good photos as well, including some older shots of Memorial Hospital.

Learned about the Robertson Pavilion which opened in 1948 this week.

I was across the street and saw a construction fence. Which made me wonder if Memorial Hermann will ever demolish the old hospital.  Unlike MD Anderson, I don't think MH does that too often.

I’m not sure what their plans are for this building. They had surgical suites there until February, when they moved them to the new building.

Took a closer look last week.  I like the double H logo.

 

I hadn't thought of the old "double H" logo in a long time, but I always liked it too. Certainly better than the anodyne Memorial Hermann logo that's currently used. You'd think there would be a history of the various logos used over time somewhere online, but if there is, it seems to be hidden pretty well.
