Summary
The Philadelphia Orthopaedic Hospital was organized on 1 October 1867 and incorporated on 2 December of that same year. In 1870, an Infirmary for Nervous Diseases was added. The hospital was established to treat patients with bodily deformities or diseases of the nervous system. On 1 July 1938, the Philadelphia Orthopaedic Hospital and Infirmary for Nervous Diseases merged with the University of Pennsylvania and became part of the University Hospital. The collection contains minutes, correspondence, records of financial transactions and personnel, and the admission, discharge, and treatment of patients, documenting the organization and administration and patient care at the Philadelphia Orthopaedic Hospital and Infirmary for Nervous Diseases, 1867-1942. Researchers should note that although there are 98 volumes in this collection, some volumes are held in boxes, while others are not. Some volumes are in poor condition and need to be handled with extra care
