1Title:  Mount Sinai Hospital Records Series III     
 Creator:  Mount Sinai Hospital 
 Dates:  1913-2006 
 Abstract:  Mount Sinai Hospital (1903-2000) 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 East 37th Street. In 1916, a new, larger facility was opened at East 105th Street and Ansel Road. 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. Mount Sinai served as a major medical resource for Cleveland's east side throughout its history. 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.

2Title:  Diana Tittle Mount Sinai Medical Center Research Papers     
 Creator:  Tittle, Diana 
 Dates:  1891-2015 
 Abstract:  Mount Sinai Hospital (1903-2000) 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. The hospital opened in 1903. 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. The closure of Mount Sinai was a significant development in the history of medicine in the Cleveland area and in the history of the Jewish community. Diana Tittle, author of Welcome to Heights High: The Crippling Politics of Restructuring America's Public Schools and other titles, began research on a book documenting the closure of Mt. Sinai in 2004. Amid concerns that the ongoing consolidation of the health care delivery system and the ongoing national health care debate would overshadow her publication, Tittle reached the decision to pursue an alternative use for her research other than publication. This collection preserves her research in its entirety, including primary source materials she collected and extensive notes from numerous oral history interviews. The collection consists of articles, booklets, brochures, correspondence, drafts, indexes, memoranda, newsletters, newspaper clippings, notes, overviews of specific subjects, reports, a scrapbook, summaries, texts of unpublished material, and other documents related to the donor's work on the history of Mt. Sinai Medical Center.
