Surgery at the Broad Street Hospital (c. 1920s) Broad Street Hospital was a private hospital founded by Dr. Eugene H. Carpenter in 1907. He expanded the hospital seven years later with 50 new beds as well as a nursing school. He then turned the hospital over to a not-for-profit corporation. In 1937, a new hospital was built behind it, the Broad Street Hospital was razed, and its site turned into lawn for the new hospital. (Courtesy Madison County Historical Society, #95.22.05)
