Yesterday the Wife had to go over here to have her knee checked and get a injection to keep it working well until her surgery being scheduled for next June. So I thought that I can’t go inside with her because of the virus thing I’ll have to find something else to take up time until she is finished with her treatment. So, before we left for her appointment I thought this would be a great time to capture some night photography of the hospital all lite up.
The Reading Hospital & Medical center was opened in 1867, but it was located at a different place. Originally it was on 11th St. in the city, but over time it was found to be too small for the needs of the area. It was decided to build a new one which I have shown here. Over the many passing years this hospital has grown much bigger that it was years ago. It is a huge place. It has become so big that it’s hard to find your way around to the different treatment areas. I have been here many, many times in the past and still have trouble finding where I want to go. It has a huge Emergency Center, a Helo pad for Life Flight helicopters to land on, and much more than I can think of. It is the biggest hospital around my area and is known for the great patient care that is given. The huge place does have a problem though. The parking for visitors is getting too small for it’s size. During the day, trying to find a place to park your car can get time consuming. As far as I know, it is being looked into.
Another thing the Hospital is known for is this famous Clock Tower. It has been here ever since the hospital was built. It keeps accurate time. The Clock Tower is the Main entrance to the buildings.
In a passing note, I was born here on March 11th, 1947. So much has changed since then.
Thanks for stopping by.

The Reading Hospital and Medical Center is magnificent, Les. Your photos do a great job of highlighting it’s beauty, and the darkening skies are beautiful. And how wonderful that the clock still works!
An impressive front to the hospital. It’s a great shot nicely lit up too!
Beautiful shots of that hospital in the evening! Nice job!
Thanks, John. I plan to shoot more night Images.
