Building #93 was originally built for patients with long term physical chronic illnesses. Early on the more bed ridden patients were housed on the top floors where smaller dayrooms existed. The larger dayrooms were on the lower levels and those wards were for more mobile patients. Eventually the top floors of the building were closed leaving only the lower levels in operation. The back of the building is the kitchen and employee dining hall. This building also has a mural room painted by a patient long ago. The murals depicts a caricature of activities in the recreation wing of the basement. This building also housed the center's central pharmacy.
