The Johnson Hospital opened in May 1917 in two cottages at the site of the current Turquoise Motor Inn, 535 E. Main St. The 10-bed hospital had a surgical wing and rooms for patients, while the west wing was given over to office, living quarters and kitchen.

A passageway was constructed to connect them.
