Jefferson Davis Hospital Southwestern Poliomyelitis Respiratory Center At 1801 Allen Pkwy.

Recommended Posts

Finally found the original TIRR building!  The TIRR hospital system was founded in 1957 by Lamar Fleming, Jr., William Spencer, and Leon Jaworski.  The hospital assumed the functions of the Southwestern Poliomyelitis Respiratory Center at the Jefferson Davis Hospital.

William A. Spencer, MD was the Medical Director of the SPRC.

The original address was 1801 Buffalo Drive, but since has changed to 1801 Allen Parkway.

Here's a photo of the JDH annex building built some 30-years after the original hospital was built.
