Scope and content

The records of St. Luke’s Hospital Center (1857-1979) includes the records of the earlier years of St. Luke’s Hospital (1857-1952), prior to merging with Woman’s Hospital (1953); the addition of the word “Center” to the name in 1965 is to indicate the multiple institutions involved. The collection is stronger in the administrative records; the clinical records contain within are sparse and incomplete. Some of what is here are restricted under HIPPA laws because they contain personal information on patients.

The materials include meeting minutes and reports of the Board of Managers and Medical Board and their executive committees as well as some alumni groups; correspondence; committee, death logs; patient casebooks; photographs; videos; legal briefs, opinions, real estate documents and patents; by-laws, acts, and constitution of the hospitals; dietary and formulary lists; superintendent’s statistics logs; pastor’s records; some departmental records; patient and medical library records; event programs; house staff skit scripts; St. Johnland documents; medical and surgical reports; military records; various publications, both historical and commercial; newsletters; reprints of doctors’ articles; artifacts, both medical, military, and historical and ephemera.
