The mansion of the late Hon. Henry W. Sage was in 1897 presented to the University by his sons Dean Sage and William H. Sage, to be known and used as the Cornell Infirmary. To this gift the donors added an endowment of $100,000, and during the summer of 1898 they refitted the mansion for its new purpose at their own expense.

The building is a structure of Medina brownstone 96 x 88 feet, including verandas and porches, and three stories in height besides a basement. A wide hall runs through the first floor from south to north, having on the right a sitting room for young women, the dining-room, pantry, and kitchen; on the left the library, which will be used as a sitting room for young men, the Matron's office, bath room, lavatory and telephone closet, and an emergency room. On the second floor are four large rooms for the sick, two nurses' rooms, two large bath rooms, a small nurses' kitchen, a large room for surgical work, with an instrument room containing sink, cold and hot water, and a slop closet, not connected with the bath rooms. On the third floor is the Matron's room, two large rooms for patients, two nurses' rooms, three servants' rooms, a bath room, nurses' kitchen, slop closet, store rooms, linen closets, etc. The basement contains a laundry, servants' bath room, and the heating apparatus.
