“Sick Officer's Quarters” (erected 1903-1908)

Segregated by rank, the Washington Naval Hospital's patients occupied either wards, if enlisted, or this building, if officers. The first floor of the Sick Officer's Quarters featured an office, reception room, medical library, a nurses' dressing station, and medicine room. There were also five patient rooms, some with fireplaces. The prestigious Naval Hospital treated many distinguished government officials including Supreme Court Justices, cabinet officials, senators, and congressmen. Congressman William Bankhead from Alabama, father of actress Tallulah Bankhead, died here in 1940. With the departure of the Hospital to Bethesda in 1942, the structure began housing the offices of Medicine and Surgery; a function it currently holds today.
