Story of the object
The hospital in Crivești was built between 1906-1907 by the architect Naum Constantinescu and was put into use in 1908. After the First World War it was moved to the village of Crivești, and since 1944 it is located in the village of Dragalina. Initially the hospital was named Carol I, in 1944 it was called Pogonești-Crivești, and later only Crivești. In 1968 the commune of Dragalina became Tutova and thus the hospital changed its name to Tutova Hospital. Until 1950, the hospital had only 30 beds. From 1973 it became the External Section of the Municipal Hospital from Bârlad, and two years later it became the Tutova Rural Hospital again.
The Chronic Diseases Hospital “Dr. I. T. Nicolaescu” from Tutova was abolished in 2011, although it served 25,000 inhabitants. It became the Tutova Home for the Elderly and now in May 2020 it houses 76 pensioners, who are cared for by 30 employees (4 nurses, 11 administrative staff and 15 care staff).
