KIRKUS REVIEW

A highly readable institutional biography of Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital, told in terms of its great doctors and supporters, from its pre-Revolutionary beginnings as an almshouse to its present importance to New York and the medical field. Enlivened by anecdote, case history and human interest stories, here is its development from its haphazard start, the ""doctors mobs"", the interruptions brought about by each war, the opening of new horizons in medicine, the pioneering work in anesthesia, surgery, psychiatry, the Medical School and its merger with New York University, and each new physical addition to the institution. And here is the latest work in new drugs, pediatrics, rehabilitation, with Doctors Jimmy Wood, Lambert, Flint, Mott, Seaman, Van Buren, Francis among others who created the spirit of Bellevue Competent.
