  • Title Englewood Hospital records [manuscript], ca. 1909-1988.
  • Physical description 10.75 linear ft. (26 boxes)
  • Collection summary
    • Administrative records of Englewood Hospital Association (later known as the Englewood Community Hospital Corporation) in Chicago (Ill.), including minutes of the board of directors and minutes of the St. George Hospital Corporation which absorbed Englewood Hospital between 1969 and 1978; incoming and some outgoing administrative correspondence; financial records; committee and departmental meeting minutes and other records; newspaper clippings and newsletters. These records document the corporate and medical staff operation of the hospital, but do not include individual patient records. A large gap exists in the corporate information ca. 1957-1969; corporate records after 1977 are sketchy and incomplete, consisting mainly of incoming correspondence without providing an overview of financial problems the hospital was encountering.
    • For many years the hospital operated as a training center for nurses and as a charitable institution, but eventually it had difficulty securing reimbursement from Public Aid. Located at West 60th Street and South Green Street in the Englewood neighborhood, the hospital primarily served the Englewood, Ogden Park, and Auburn Park communities and secondarily Roseland, Grand Crossing, Jackson Park, and the Stockyards district.
  • Biographical or Historical Note Founded in 1894 as Englewood Union Hospital, the institution became the Swedish American Hospital Association (corporate name) in 1905, keeping Englewood Hospital as the popular name. Its new facility was erected at West 60th Street and South Green Street. In April 1909, Englewood Hospital Association became sole owner of the hospital. During 1969-1978, it was administered by St. George Hospital Corporation, and later by the Englewood Community Hospital Corporation until it closed in 1988.
