HISTORY OF IRELAND ARMY COMMUNITY HOSPITAL

Photo of Station Hospital Camp Knox KY 1932 

In 1918, the year of Camp Knox’s birth, the base hospital, a World War I cantonment building, was completed on the present site of Lindsey Golf course near the Gold Vault.  The Hospital burned down in 1928 and medical services were relocated to the World War I guesthouse on Bullion Boulevard.

A brick Hospital located on “E” street (which is now 1st Calvary Division Road), was built in 1934 and served as the Fort Knox Post Hospital until 1942, when two mobilization Hospitals were constructed.  Both Hospital complexes were located along Dixie Street in the area now occupied by the Dependent School facilities and the Morand Manor Housing area.

A multi-storied concrete structure, Ireland Army Community Hospital, named in Honor of Major General Merritte W. Ireland, former Surgeon General of the Army, was completed in 1957 and serves the present Fort Knox Community.
