Carrie Tingley Hospital 70th Anniversary

The New Mexico State Veterans Home sits on a hill overlooking the Hot Springs district of modern day Truth or Consequences. It was built in 1937 as Carrie Tingley Hospital for Crippled Children. On the facility’s 100th birthday, in 2007, former employees and patients were invited to gather and pay tribute to the hospital. A brief history, scenes from the ceremony, and some historic and modern-day stills are included in this video.
