Sick and pregnant immigrants were treated and cured before they were allowed to enter the country _ or were sent back to their native land. The facility included wards for contagious diseases, mental health and obstetrics. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)NEW YORK (AP) — The crumbling old sick ward opens off a long hallway, separate from the rest of the Ellis Island hospital complex. Plaster peels from the walls.

This is where the sickest immigrants came on their final days.
