32Title:  Mount Sinai Hospital Records, Series II

 Abstract:  Mount Sinai Hospital had its origins in the Young Ladies Hebrew Association for the Care of the Needy Sick, created in 1892 by nine young women in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1900, they changed their name to the Jewish Women's Hospital Association. A 29-bed facility, named Mount Sinai Hospital, opened in 1903 at 2373 E. 37th St. In 1916, a new, larger facility was opened at E. 105th St. and Ansel Rd. Innovations included outpatient clinics for pediatrics and mental hygiene, established in 1915. A nursing school was included. Mount Sinai affiliated with Western Reserve University for the training and education of its nurses in 1930, and its doctors in 1947. Medical research was given a high priority. The Women's and Junior Women's auxiliaries provided important assistance to the medical staff and patients, including a nursery school for children of nurses and volunteers. Mount Sinai served as a major medical resource for Cleveland's east side throughout its history. Expansion included a twelve-story building and a kidney dialysis center (1960), a new laboratory facility (1970), and an outpatient clinic in the Cleveland suburb of Beachwood (1972).

33Title:  Abington Foundation Records     
 Creator:  Abington Foundation 
 Dates:  1983-2004 
 Abstract:  The Abington Foundation (f. 1983) was created by David Knight Ford (1894-1993) and Elizabeth Kingsley Ford (1896-1990) to support organizations, generally in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, dedicated to promoting education, health care, economic independence, and cultural activities. The foundation's grant-making philosophy was devised by Mr. Ford and his four sons who comprised the original board of trustees. Each funding area had a particular focus. The educational focus is pre-primary through higher education, and thus the foundation has supported a vast array of educational institutions and programs such as Early Childhood Options of University City, museums (e.g. Cleveland Museum of Natural History), historical societies (e.g. Moreland Hills Historical Society, and the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad) and universities, including Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State University Foundation, Inc. The foundation's healthcare focus is on geriatrics and nursing with grants going to the Eliza Bryant Center, Senior Citizen Resources, Inc., The Center for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, American Red Cross, and many others. Economic independence with a focus on the promotion or sustaining of individual and family self-sufficiency has led the foundation to give grants to organizations such as the Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland, Ohio Hunger Task Force, People's Emergency Shelter, and Habitat for Humanity. In promoting local culture with an emphasis on arts education and historic preservation, the Abington Foundation has made grants to artistic enterprises and groups such as Art House, Inc., Beck Center for the Arts, The Holden Arboretum, Cleveland Public Theater, and Musical Arts Association. The Fords wished to serve their country and community, and dedicated their lives to doing so. David Knight Ford was a captain in the United States armed forces during World War I, joining shortly after graduating from Yale University. After the war, he returned to school and earned a law degree from Western Reserve University. His wife, Elizabeth, volunteered with the Red Cross as a nurse during the First World War, as well as a volunteer nurse's aide during the Second World War, and founded the Ohio League for Nursing (originally the Cleveland Area League for Nursing). Elizabeth earned the Margaret Ireland Award for Civic Achievement in 1973 from the Women's City Club for her works. They married in 1920 and remained so for 70 years until Elizabeth's death in 1990. David's business acumen led to the founding of the Lubrizol Corporation, and later the Lubrizol Foundation. He donated the family farm (originally settled by his great grandfather) situated on land now part of University Circle to help develop Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals. Parts of the farm became the sites of the Case School of Applied Sciences, Western Reserve College, and University Hospitals. Named for the area of New England where David Ford's ancestors settled, the Abington Foundation has continued after the deaths of its founders, providing assistance through 2012. Though both the elder Fords have died, family members continue to serve on the Board of Directors. The collection consists of correspondence, financial records, grant proposals, minutes, newspaper clippings, and receipts.

A new medical wing was added to the hospital in the 1980s, and in 1993 an integrated medical campus was opened in Beachwood. In 1996, the nonprofit hospital was sold to a for-profit company, Primary Health Systems (PHS). In March 1999, PHS filed for bankruptcy, and in February 2000, Mount Sinai Hospital closed. During the demolition of the Mount Sinai building in 2006, workers uncovered a time capsule that had been placed in the cornerstone of the building during construction in 1915. The time capsule held newspapers, fundraising records, and miscellaneous items related to the construction of the building. Throughout the history of Mount Sinai Hospital, female volunteers provided invaluable assistance to the medical staff and patients. The Women's and Junior Women's Auxiliaries created and staffed a nursery school for the children of nurses and volunteers. They offered classes that trained volunteers to work in outpatient clinics and pediatric wards, and, in addition, organized a gift shop and television rental for patients. In 1997, the auxiliaries were renamed the Mount Sinai Community Partners. The Auxiliaries also published a newsletter, "The Chart," documenting their activities. The collection consists of reports, minutes, booklets, financial records, newspapers, quarterly reports, and a scrapbook.

38Title:  Saint Luke's Foundation (Hospital) Records     
 Creator:  Saint Luke's Hospital 
 Dates:  1904-1997 
 Abstract:  Saint Luke's Hospital was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1894 as the Cleveland General Hospital. Its purpose was to provide clinical training for medical students of Wooster University and as a training school for nurses. At the same time, the College Building and Hospital Association was incorporated. The College Building and Hospital Association became the Saint Luke's Hospital Association of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1904. Medical staff at the hospital affiliated with the medical department of Ohio Wesleyan University. In 1906 Cleveland General Hospital was renamed Saint Luke's Hospital. Cleveland industrialist and philanthropist Francis Fleury Prentiss provided financial support and leadership, serving as president of the association from 1906 until his death in 1937. His wife, Elisabeth Severance Allen Prentiss, succeeded him as president until her death in 1944. The Saint Luke's Hospital School of Nursing closed in 1970. In 1980, the Saint Luke's Hospital Association adopted a long range plan of acquisition and new programs. By 1983, it held leases on five medical buildings and had control over Saint Luke's Hospital, Shaker Medical Center Hospital, and the for-profit Medical Outreach Services, Inc. In 1992, the Saint Luke's system merged with MetroHealth Medical Center, and its name was changed to MetroHealth Saint Luke's Medical Center. The merger dissolved in 1993, but the affiliation continued. In 1993 the name of the hospital changed once more, becoming Saint Luke's Medical Center. In 1997, Saint Luke's Medical Center was sold to Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corporation and its regional partners, the Sisters of Charity of Saint Augustine. The proceeds of this sale and the endowments of the Saint Luke's Hospital Association and Saint Luke's Medical Center were used to create the Saint Luke's Foundation. The collection consists of the institutional records of Saint Luke's Hospital, MetroHealth Saint Luke's Medical Center, Saint Luke's Medical Center, and the Saint Luke's Hospital Association, including historical records, correspondence, contracts and agreements, minutes, financial statements, wills, newspaper clippings, publications, transcripts, reports, and surveys.
