On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Jewish General Hospital, the Hospital’s Archives Department has digitized Our Tribute Everlasting written by Alexander Wright in 1984 for the Hospital’s 50th anniversary.
Our Tribute Everlasting documents the history of the Hospital from its medical precursors, the Herzl Dispensary and the Hebrew Maternity Hospital, through to its inception in 1934. As well, the book marvelously describes the JGH’s growth and development in patient care, the importance of medical education and research in its early years and its close connection with the community at large.
