Winner of The Modern Hospital Magazine's "Modern Hospital Award" in 1965. The building appeared in the June 1965 edition of the magazine. The national award was based on architectural design, functional planning, economy of construction and operation and proper provision for the community's needs.

Designed as one of the most high tech hospital buildings in the nation. It used advanced audio-visual systems for doctors and nurses and each patient room had a TV.

Was built to replace a 1914 building, after Forsyth County residents approved bonds for its construction in 1959.

The massive building is supported by 1,084 concrete piles. The floors are lightweight structural concrete flat slabs.
