Check our excellent new web page about the history of the AZ State hospital. The stuff on the new hospital history page is fascinating. One of the things that struck me is that the issues of concern to the Superintendent of the Hospital 100 years ago were remarkable similar to today. The 100 year old documents we have talk about things like staff shortages, salaries, budget shortfalls and building maintenance and renovation. All of these are still relevant today! Of course, we’ve made huge strides in treatment, patient therapy techniques and implementation, overcrowding, patient quality of life and community reintegration- so in those respects today’s hospital is nothing like it was 100 years ago. The hospital continues to be innovative leaders in mental health for the state of Arizona. We anticipate the next 100 years to be filled with hope and promise.
