Excerpt from Annual Report of the Trustees of the Worcester State Hospital: For the Year Ending November 30, 1926

To His Excellency, the Governor, and the Honorable Council:

The Trustees of the Worcester State Hospital respectfully submit the ninety-fourth annual report of the hospital, with a record of the various departments as given by the Superintendent, Dr. William A. Bryan, and a report of the Treasurer, Miss Jessie M. D. Hamilton.

During the year, Miss Caroline M. Caswell of Northborough, resigned as a member of the Board of Trustees, and her place as Secretary of the Board was filled by the choice of Mrs. Anna C. Tatman.

During the year, Mr. Luther C. Greenleaf of Boston, a member of the Board of Trustees, died, after serving the Commonwealth efficiently and faithfully for many years as a member of this Board. His charming personality had endeared him to all the members.

The two vacancies in the Board thus caused have not been filled.

The new congregate dining-room is nearing completion, where meals will be served on the cafeteria plan to patients of both sexes. This method is a great success in every way, especially from the viewpoint of efficiency and economy, as well as in the satisfaction and happiness of the patients. This new room is provided in consequence of the success of the former experimental cafeteria rooms.

The medical work of the hospital is of great importance and requires a high type of medical officer. To secure the services of the right kind of physicians it is important to furnish them and their families with comfortable and enjoyable living quarters. To this end it is recommended that cottages be erected for the accommodation of the members of the medical staff and their families.

More and more attention is being paid to the physical well-being of patients and to the subject of the relation of physical troubles to mental disease.

Once more attention is called to the remoteness of the Hillside Farm from the hospital, and the waste caused by transportation of feed, supplies, and produce. Soon there must be provided a new farm unit at the main hospital.

Study must be given to the question of transforming the Summer Street Department into a Psychopathic and Receiving Hospital, its location being excellent for such purposes. This would entail considerable expenses for repairs, alterations, and the installation of hydrotherapy equipment.

It is important that the Commonwealth should formulate and embark on a fixed program of doing away with the old wooden floors, which are rapidly wearing out, in the main hospital, and of replacing them with concrete floors in order to greatly lessen the fire hazard. It would not be too expensive to provide for this work at the rate of two wards per year. It would be folly to replace the outworn wooden floors with wood, when the use of the more permanent concrete would lessen the danger of fire enormously.

Storage facilities at the main hospital are scattered in such a way as to make for inefficiency and needless expense for labor. A new store building which would house most of the stores could be more economically administered.

The trustees wish to take this occasion to register their confidence in the administration of Dr. William A. Bryan, Superintendent, and the members of his staff.
