Notes: The Oak Forest Sanatorium was located in La Crosse County, Wisconsin, and constructed in 1918 to treat tuberculosis patients. It continued in this mission up until the mid-1960s when Oak Forest became a nursing home as well. When a new addition to the Hillview Health Center was completed in 1981, Oak Forest was phased out of operation and razed the same year.
