Established in Eighteen Hundred Fifty Five as a fort and cavalry post to control Geronimo's Mescalero Apaches. Named after Captain Henry W. Stanton, First United States Dragoons, who was killed in action with the Indians. By a Presidential proclamation, the fort was transferred to the United States Public Health Service for use as a Marine Hospital in Eighteen Hundred and Ninety-Nine. The Fort Stanton Sanatorium became the first government hospital exclusively for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis. Closed by the United States Public Health Service in June Nineteen Hundred and Fifty Three, the hospital was formally accepted by the state of New Mexico and the New Mexico Department of Public Welfare on July first, Nineteen Hundred and Fifty Three. The Fort Stanton Medical Center is dedicated to the treatment of needy residents of the state who are afflicted with tuberculosis.
