This 1982 book examines the changes in hospital care in New York that occurred around the turn of the twentieth century. It represents a fundamental departure from traditional medical history, which has usually emphasised 'progress' through science and technology. Professor Rosner identifies the economic, political and demographic pressures that brought about a reshaping of the health care system, and analyses the dramatic reorganisation of hospitals that took place. He also discusses major scientific advances such as the discovery of anaesthetic properties of ether, nitrous oxide and chloroform, and the consequent increase in surgical solutions to medical problems.

Book Description:

A social history of the health care system in New York City from the 1890s through the Progressive Era. Analyzes the dramatic reorganization of the hospital system from a series of idiosyncratic social welfare facilities into rationalized and bureaucratized medical institutions. Examines the political and financial struggles which accompanied the growth of the modern hospital system.
