The board of directors may adopt and equip a sanitarium building or buildings or part thereof to fit the same for the accommodation, reception, detention, care and treatment of persons afflicted with tuberculosis and who require care and treatment therefor who may be committed to, placed in or directed to be received by, the sanitarium or the managing officer thereof for care and treatment by or under any lawful authority or process. The board of directors may receive, detain, care for and treat such afflicted persons in the sanitarium or any sanitarium building in pursuance of and subject to such authority or process, but in no event after a cure has been effected.

However, no such persons afflicted with tuberculosis shall be received, given care and treatment, or kept in the sanitarium or any of the sanitarium buildings if there shall be any inhabitants of the city or village afflicted with tuberculosis in need of care and treatment in the sanitarium. Any commitment, placing or direction to be received, above set forth, shall be in accordance with due process of law.
