"One of the first of several attempts to found a hospital for the general public in Madison was that by Doctors WIlliam W. Gill and James N. Boyd. They erected and opened the "Madison Hospital" in 1889. Boyd died only a short time later, the enterprise lapsed, and the building was converted to apartments. The Hospital Association, organized in 1898 for the purpose of establishing a public hospital, in 1900 resolved to purchase the Gill property but could not raise the funds."
