*Plant and Scrymser Pavilion, St. Luke’s Hospital

Plant and Scrymser Pavilion

Constructed 1904-1906 & 1926-1928
Designed by Ernest Flagg
Description: St. Luke’s Hospital began treating patients in 1854 and built their hospital in 1892. The buildings were both designed in a French Renaissance Revival style with pinkish gray granite, marble, terra cotta, and brick. Ernest Flagg is reported to compare the buildings to something you would find in Luxembourg, France while provoking the 17th century trend of “palace hospitals.” The pavilion was created to supply facilities for wealthy private patients which helped subsidize other hospital needs. The two pavilions were renovated and are now a luxury apartment building.
