General Note:
The society grew in membership so rapidly that it leased the Orange Hotel on Tampa Street in June 1903 for use as a sanitarium until the original Covadonga Sanitarium opened on Ola Avenue in April 1905 with 54 beds. The second Covadonga Hospital on 21st Avenue opened in October 1927. The hospitals were called Covadonga in homage to the Virgin of Covadonga who appeared to Pelayo at the beginning of the Reconquest of Spain in the 8th century which freed the country from Moorish rule.
