The new Bartlett Hospital was to be formally dedicated on September 14th. The new wing of the hospital contained room for 23 patients along with a kitchen, x-ray room, and laboratory rooms. The old hospital would be renovated as soon as those patients could be moved into the new part of the facility. (Sapulpa Herald, September 14, 1958).
The Herald prepared an entire section of the newspaper layout for the dedication for the Bartlett Memorial. Businesses advertised shared their congratulations and praise. Workers within the hospital had their biography introduced inside this section. Picture after picture, story after story, page after page of information on the Bartlett Memorial.
