The 551st United States Air Force Hospital is a former hospital at Otis Air Force Base. With the closure of the base in 1973, the hospital closed. It was the site of the birth of Patrick Bouvier Kennedy.[1] The hospital consisted of a series of connected one-story buildings. The buildings were torn down in the early 1970s.
