Welcome aboard, Chyly!

Unfortunately, at the current time we do not have any records relating to any of the US Hospitals that you have indicated in your post. It might be worthwhile to contact the US National Archives ( since there is a good possibility that they will hold records for them. Oftentimes, these documents will include rough layouts for the numerous facilities, and contain plenty of interesting data.

Good luck with your research, and please keep us posted about its progress.

Kind regards,
