The once majestic RVMH. The final demolition occurred in 1966.
For those interested in a bit of medical history, especially military medical history, check out my recent article published in Hektoen International: A Journal of Medical Humanities. The story of the Royal Victoria Military Hospital spans more than 100 years, several wars, and thousands of lives of veterans and health care workers.
Dr. Parish is a full-time physician in Addiction Medicine and Family Medicine in Naples Florida. He is a Kentucky native and alumnus of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. His thirty years of experience has varied from non-profit and for-profit medical groups in addition to private practice.
He is a member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, Thoreau Society, and life member of the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society.
