Photo and description
At the end of the nineteenth century, a wealthy Old Believer merchant and respected magistrate for the Saratov district, IA Pozdeyev, died, leaving a will in which a part of the capital went to “godly deeds”. The merchant's widow Daria Semyonovna Pozdeeva, who spent most of her life doing charity work (the shelter on Tsaritsynskaya), did not survive her husband for a long time, leaving an impressive fortune and her husband's mandate to her executor V.I.Sokolov.
In 1896, with the consent of the City Duma behind the Glubuchevoy ravine, at the beginning of Sokolovaya Gora, construction of the main building of the first children's hospital in Saratov began. V.I.Sokolov ordered the project to the Saratov architect V.L. Vladykin, who approached the order responsibly and professionally. Having designed a building in the Old Russian style that meets all the requirements of hygiene standards of the then medicine, the architect doomed himself to fame and respect, and the building has been functioning for more than a century.
In 1899, the main building of the D.S. Pozdeeva hospital with high, light, well-ventilated wards and mosaic floors was opened for young patients. The building also had two bathrooms (in the reception area and a common one) and a recreation room with access to the garden.
In 1901, on February 25, the ceremonial opening of the hospital complex with high-ranking guests took place in a prayer service for Bishop John of Saratov and Tsaritsyno from the Dukho-Soshestskaya Church.
Until 1917, the hospital belonged to the local branch of the All-Russian Red Cross Society, but the City Duma allocated a subsidy of 2,000 rubles annually.
In Soviet times, the hospital became one of the city's children's medical institutions specializing in infectious diseases.
Now the building houses a department of the fifth children's hospital, which is in memory and respect for Daria Semyonovna, among the people called "Pozdeevskaya".
