The hospital was designed by West Palm Beach architects Harvey & Clarke and is not special architecturally. The hospital building was deemed historically significant at a local level for its role as the sole hospital serving African-Americans in West Palm Beach in the period up to the ending of segregation in the 1960s. It "was a well-known institution among blacks throughout the South" during the 1920s and 1930s.[2]: 7 

On 26 January 2001, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.[1]

It is included in the Northwest Historic District.
