A historical marker to commemorate the Jewish Hospital was dedicated at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia today! Thank you to James F. Kenney, Mayor of Philadelphia, Cherelle L. Parker, Member, Philadelphia City Council, District 9, and Rob Armstrong, PhD, Representing the PA Historical & Museum Commission for honoring us! What started as the Jewish Hospital in 1866 grew to become Einstein Healthcare Network. The Jewish Hospital was among the first hospitals in Philadelphia to publicly proclaim that it was dedicated to the relief of the sick and wounded no matter the color of ones skin, the God they worshipped or the neighborhood or nation from which they came. Over more than a century and a half, Einstein has much to be proud of breakthroughs in research, serving as a leader in medical education, training more than 3,500 health professional students each year, and for numerous innovations in patient care.
