St. Louis legalized prostitution in 1870, and the Social Evils Hospital was where prostitutes received mandatory medical inspections and were treated for venereal diseases. The prostitution ordinance was repealed just four years later. Located at Arsenal and Sublette, the hospital (renamed the Female Hospital) continued to operate for decades by offering care for women and children. It was torn down in 1915.

This is a vintage postcard depicting the Homer G. Phillips Hospital for the Colored in St. Louis. It was the city's only hospital for Blacks from 1937-1955, when city hospitals were desegregated. It was formally closed in 1979. While in operation, it was one of the few hospitals in the United States where Black Americans could train as doctors and nurses, and by 1961, the hospital had trained the "largest number of black doctors and nurses in the world."
