The Mare Island Naval Shipyard Hospital was constructed when the shipyard was established in the late 1800's, however the beautiful, original building experienced severe damage in an 1898 quake.
The replacement building shown here is the central section of a three and four story building and a great example of Beaux Arts classicism. Not only that, but it is unique in style for the shipyard.
Since the building's inception, many modifications have been made, including drop ceilings, many new layers of paint and the addition of better HVAC systems.
When the shipyard closed in the 1990's, the hospital became vacant. In the recent years Touro University has been using the building for storage.
