Haskins' Hospital was founded in 1886 by Thomas M. Haskins, M. D. An Annex was added in 1900. By 1902, the hospital contained twenty-five bedrooms, several parlors, reception rooms, operating rooms, and four large wards: one ward for women, one for children, and two for men. The hospital boasted a free ambulance as well as a free library for the use of the patients.
Haskins' Hospital closed its doors on June 1, 1915.

Because of the overwhelming number of items donated, the limited amount of staff time to handle these donations, and limited space to house the donated materials, OCPL must restrict the donations accepted.
