Re: Jewish Memorial Hospital #general

Hi and Happy New Year to my fellow genners,

I read with interest the responses regarding the
dispostion of the Jewish Memorial Hospital [of New
York]. My father-in-law's first cousin died at that
hospital, [a mere child of 7 and 1/2] on September 16,
1928. Because the death certificate of this child
specified the hospital as Jewish Memorial Hospital, 10
years before Ralph's response, I felt that more
research should be done.

Checking on the internet, I found that Jewish Memorial
Hospital came into existance in April of 1905 as a
nonsectarian facility called the Philantropin
Hospital, located in the Harlem section of New York at
Fifth Avenue and 128th Street. Subsequent locations
for the hospital were Inwood Hill Park, Dyckman Street
and River Road and finally, Broadway and 196th Street
where it changed hands and was renamed Jewish Memorial
Hospital. The Bronx Maternity Hospital merged with
Jewish Memorial in 1952. Jewish Memorial closed its
doors in 1983 due to financial problems. Intermediate
School 218 replaced the hospital at that site.

So, it had multiple locations and names, was part of a
merger and a school does occupy its last location.

Hope this helps,
