The rod of Aesculapius marks each of the pilasters supporting the entablature of the entrance to the courthouse annex, symbolizing the medical profession of the building's original occupants. Clinical in feeling in the straightforward interior arrangement and materials, the medical facility was designed by a partnership of physicians and dentists for their practices. In addition to examination and operating rooms, the building held a pharmacy, laboratory, x-ray room, and various testing rooms.
