Dr. Emma Rochelle Wheeler, a graduate of Meharry Medical College, established, owned and operated Walden Hospital beginning in 1915. Established to serve the medical needs of Chattanooga's Negro community, the hospital had a 30-bed capacity. Walden was staffed by 19 black doctors of the Mountain City Medical Society. For 20 years, the hospital served as a nursing school. After 37 years of service, Walden Hospital closed in June 1952.
