DR. FRANK S. DOLLEY
One of the most important institutions in the north end of San Mateo county is the South San Francisco General Hospital owned and conducted by Dr. Frank S. Dolley. Situated near the great South San Francisco industrial district and close to San Bruno, Daly City and Colma, the residents of these cities are saved the cost and inconvenience of going to San Francisco or San Mateo for treatment.
The South San Francisco General Hospital was founded by the late Dr. Harry G. Plymire and on his death it was taken over by Dr. Dolley. The institution is modern and up-to-date in every detail and fills one of the most serious needs of the north end of the county.
Dr. Dolley came to South San Francisco after a wide experience in medicine and surgery. After graduating from the medical school of Maine he studied under some famous surgeons at several New York hospitals. He was three years at the Presbyterian Hospital and two years at the Roosevelt Hospital. After coming to San Francisco Dr. Dolley spent several months in the surgical department of the Lane Hospital.
Dr. Frank S. Dolley was born in Maine on July 26, 1883. With the exception of the last two years which he spent in California, Dr. Dolley passed his entire life in the East. He was married in New York in 1912.
