dc.description The installation of these steel girders in June 1979 for the canopied entrance of Community Hospital on West Street were part of a $2.25 million renovation of the hospital. Community Hospital merged with Leila Hospital in July 1988 to create the former Battle Creek Health System, acquired by Bronson Health Care in 2011. Construction of the original building began in 1931 to replace the former Nichols Hospital. The project died during the Great Depression. A Public Works Administration loan revived the project, which opened as Community Hospital in 1938. The building reopened Westbrook Place, a senior house complex, in 2006.
