Overview

The College of Medicine Building was opened in 1926 largely through the endowments of wealthy local merchants. It has a grand facade of twelve heavy fluted Doric columns, with eleven enormous doors behind them. High up on the walls to the left and right of the colonnade are bas-reliefs that symbolize healing, while a sculptured Roman eagle greets you above the central doorway. As part of the process of restoration work between 1985 and 1987, a grand staircase was added to the main lobby. Today this impressive building serves as the home of the Ministry of Health.
