WICHITA FALLS, Texas (AP) - A new historical marker honors the legacy of a Wichita Falls hospital that was razed in 2013.

The Wichita Falls Times Records News (https://bit.ly/1QXwFhq ) reports that on Saturday the official Texas Historical Marker for Wichita General Hospital was unveiled during a dedication ceremony.

The marker stands at the corner where the hospital that served the area for more than 90 years once stood.

The marker contains a brief history of the hospital, starting from its founding as a three-story, 40-bed hospital in 1915, to additional constructions and additions. The hospital merged with Bethania Regional Medical Center in 1997 to form United Regional Health Care System. By 2011, all services at the hospital were consolidated to another campus.
