Women who served as nurses in this historic hospital in El Paso, TX should be honored every March during Women's History Month.

As a young teen, my father was treated there after surgery at Southwestern General. The Ralston Hospital had a children's ward with patients recovering or getting treatment for polio, juvenile arthritis, and Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, which is what my father had contracted. The hospital brought to the city its first orthopedic specialists. Children being treated there came from all across the region — as far as Lubbock and parts of eastern and southern New Mexico.

The proprietors of Ralston Hospital was El Paso Lodge #130. This hospital helped usher medicine in the region.
