High altitude, sunshine, and rest were the preferred treatment for tuberculosis in the 19th century. As soon as the railroad came to El Paso in 1881, tuberculosis patients arrived to improve their chances for survival. Also, where many undocumented women gave birth.

Where many undocumented women gave birth.

I was born at St. a Joseph's maternity in 1957. Is this the same place? My mother lived in Juarez Chihuahua. WHAT WAS he address of this place?

In 1957, St. Joseph Hospital was located at 1901 Grandview Ave. It had been a medical facility for many years prior to being run by the Sisters of St. Joseph. That same year, St. Joseph's Maternity Unit was at 1001 N. Kansas and was a part of Hotel Dieu Hospital. The maternity unit was established about 1941, and closed in 1967. This is probably where you were born. A good book to look at is The Caregivers, El Paso's Medical History 1898-1998, by Barbara Funkhouser.
