I just felt that this clarification was required for purposes of disambiguation.
Now that I think of it...
The 814th Hospital Center in Paris was the administrative arm of the US Army overseeing the medical activities in the Seine section, and there are extensive records in the National Archives of its doings. There was briefly an 815th Hospital Center as well, but it was of much shorter existence and breadth.
I have copies of some of these records, and the 202nd General Hospital is mentioned a few times concerning administrative events, without any real detail about the place itself or its named personnel, though.
For example, a quick look at a unit report of 31 December 1945, covering the previous 6 months, p. 5, shows that during that period, the 202nd General Hospital was "inspected by the 814th Hospital Center."
Will look for further remarks about the hospital and nurses.
