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.

I was also born at St. Joseph's Maternity Unit, in January 1967. Thank you for the address. I'm a military veteran (former Air Force aviator) and bilingual keynote speaker. I have been curious to know how from the border I was born (I reference this in my keynotes everywhere I speak - CaptainMama.com). I appreciate the address. Do you know what MONTH in 1967 the unit was closed?
