GOLDSBORO, N.C. - July 31, 2018 - PRLog -- Books-A-Million to Host Book Signing for Sanatoriums and Asylums of Eastern North Carolina

Local author Dr. Randy D. Kearns will be available to sign copies of book


From Wilmington, Fayetteville, Greenville, New Bern, Elizabeth City, Wilson, Kinston, Goldsboro, and many points in between, this book offers a brief look at many of the historical asylums and sanatoriums, as well as temporary hospitals of war and disaster, in Eastern North Carolina. It shows what they were and what they became as they transformed into the great hospitals of today. Many of these old buildings have long since been torn down or reused in a variety of ways seldom connected to their past. This book provides a glimpse of these great buildings, several of their artifacts, and images of what health care used to be in Eastern North Carolina and the role medicine has played as the region has grown.
