In 1853 the hospital was completed at a cost of $151,742.48.
It was constructed in the Georgian style on a monumental scale and is, to this day, an example of classical revival institutional architecture.

He situated the hospital "on a gentle eminence, at the extreme northerly part of the farm, being about one mile from town."
