Chimborazo Hospital was a Civil War -era facility built in Richmond, Virginia to service the medical needs of the Confederate Army . It functioned between 1862 and 1865 in what is now Chimborazo Park , treating over 76,000 injured Confederate soldiers. During its existence, the hospital admitted nearly 78,000 patients and between 6,500 and 8,000 of these patients died. This mortality rate of between 8.3 and 10.3 percent is among the lowest such rates of period military hospitals. After the war, the Hospital became a refuge for freed slaves.
