History of the Jewish Hospital Association of Philadelphia (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from History of the Jewish Hospital Association of Philadelphia This inscription over the main entrance to the Jewish Hos pital is expressive of the high ideals which actuated its founders in their noble work. It was instituted and has ever since been governed by Jews, and is managed in the broadest spirit of humanity. Originally formed for the care of the sick, it has, year by year, extended its sphere of useful ness. New problems have been presented, considered and, under the leadership of men of most sterling qualities, have been overcome. To properly compile its history, giving due credit to those who have so conscientiously labored in behalf of humanity, would be a restatement of volumes containing pro lific records of unselfish charity, discriminatingly but widely distributed. The interest manifested by the people of all sec tions of this city and State, in the support of the Association, demonstrates their appreciation of the disinterested labors of the management. From a small dwelling in West Philadelphia, which had been altered into a hospital _for the sick and a home for the aged and infirm, it has grown to include twenty-two acres of ground, upon which are located twenty beaiitiful buildings, constructed, equipped and maintained with all that modern ingenuity and science has produced for the treatment of the sick, and the physical, moral and religious care of the aged and destitute.
