108 Kingsley Ave Orange Park FL
« on: June 16, 2012, 05:36:46 PM »
Is anyone here old enough to remember when this was a hospital?  I was born there 50+ years ago.  Back then, it was called Pureal Medical Center.  (I have no idea where that name came from).  Sort of creepy to ride past there, but nostalgia sometimes wins out - more often around my birthday. There was a Dr. Bergh, who delivered me and was also my pediatrician for a number of years - (don't ask me how that worked back then, either).  Later, he was joined by a young Dr. Stephens,  who never made me get "shots", so I liked him just fine!  If anyone remembers it or happens to have photos of it, it would be great if you would post something, please?

I don't recall the hospital, but for creepy you can't beat what I knew as "the Ape Farm," also on Kingsley. It was actually the Yerkes Primate Laboratory, which eventually moved to Atlanta.

Random find on google! A court case mentioning this hospital.

Hello. It's very late to answer your question now, after years have passed, but yes, I do remember it. I went there several times, for example, my tonsils were taken out there. And Dr. Bergh, now deceased, was a good friend of mine, . Did you know that he had an underground bomb shelter at Pureal?
