Title

A History of Woman's Hospital New York, New York by Alvarene Molland RNMA

Subject

Woman's Hospital, founded 1855, merged in 1965 with St Luke's Hospital a few blocks north, which is now known as Mount Sinai Morningside.

Description

This short history was written by Alvarene Molland, RNMA, Clinical Coordinator Nursing in 1965, upon the occasion of Woman's Hospital merging with St Luke's Hospital. This is her 1992 revision, with an addendum upon the occasion of moving the inpatient services of Woman's Hospital to "New Roosevelt Hospital" on 59th Street in Manhattan. The author's views on J. Marion Sims may be out of step with prevailing views of the 2020s. As Woman's Hospital was one of several pioneering medical institutions to make its home in the Bloomingdale area, and as not much is readily available online about its history, this short introduction is clearly of value.
