Notes: The Hebrew Hospital owes its existence to the Hebrew Benevolent Society, which, in March, 1863, appointed a committee to report a plan for the establishment of a hospital. The corner-stone was laid on the 25th of June, 1866, but the “Hebrew Hospital and Asylum Association” was not chartered until Jan. 13, 1868, and in May of that year the building, corner of Ann and Monument Streets, was completed, at a cost of sixty-three thousand dollars, and opened for the reception of patients. The object of the association is to “afford surgical and medical aid, comfort, and protection in sickness to the suffering and needy, and to provide an asylum for the infirm and destitute, and for all other purposes appertaining to hospitals, asylums, and dispensaries.” The average number of inmates is between twenty and twenty-five; the hospital will accommodate thirty-two patients. The income is derived from subscriptions, donations, bequests, etc. The officers are Joseph Friedenwald, president from the beginning until the present time; Vice-President, B.F. Ulman; Treasurer, A.S. Adler; Secretary, Ignatius Lauer. The Ladies’ Hebrew Hospital Association, which was formed in 1868, was dissolved on the 7th of Maryland, 1880. It had been largely instrumental in the construction and support of the hospital.

Notes:THE HEBREW HOSPITAL AND ASYLUM ASSOCIATION OF BALTIMORE CITY.This association was organized in 1865, and is situated on the corner of Monument and Ann streets, Baltimore. The total cost of the property was $115,000. It is a large, substantial building, with first-class accommodations for the aged sick. This institution does not discriminate as to nationality or creed, but provides alike for the Jew and Gentile. The equipment of the building is admirable and facilities complete. The Board of Managers is very active and efficient. And it is very fortunate for the inmates that they have so comfortable a home. Provision has been made since the organization of the institution for 780 persons. The capacity of the building is seventy-six. It has had a daily average of twenty persons for twenty years or more. It is principally assisted by contributions from charitable Hebrews of Baltimore, and receives small contributions from the city of Baltimore, and an annual appropriation of $2,500 was made by the State of Maryland at the session of 1892.Source: , Message of Frank Brown, Governor of Maryland, to the General Assembly at its Regular Session, January, 1894 Baltimore: Wm.
