Medical heritage of first Polish hospital in Chicago

Polish medical heritage exists in every corner of the world. It is popularized because of group of doctors, social workers and often religious nuns serving the needed. A great example of how to preserve the memory of Polish medicine is the first Polish hospital in Chicago, established in 1894 by the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth. It was founded and run by Polish nuns for Polish doctors and patients. Its long history can be found in the museum organized in 1985 in the central part of the hospital.
