Inscription.  Dedicated on March 25, 1928 as Humboldt Hospital, the Albany Hospital served countless patients until its closure in 1985. The hospital provided a surgical department, as well as emergency and obstetrical care and general medical services. Originally privately owned, Albany Hospital later became part of Alta Bates. Albany is grateful to the doctors, nurses, staff, and volunteers who provided medical care to the community for so many years.
