The Tri-Counties Sanatorium for Tuberculosis was established in the start of the 1934. In January, construction began on the building in Scottsboro, AL. The brick, twenty-six room tuberculosis hospital was completed in June 1937 at a cost of $30,000.

Patients were first admitted to the Tri-Counties Tuberculosis Sanatorium on September 6th 1937. On November 20th 1937, less than three months after the hospital had opened its doors, the building was destroyed by a fire. The 17 patients housed in at the hospital were safely removed from the building and were transferred to both private homes and Hodges Hospital in Scottsboro. [1]
