Book Explores Black Hospitals In America

 


TALLAHASSEE, FL  – One of America’s leading authorities on Black hospitals, Nathaniel Wesley, Jr., has recently unveiled his fourth publication, Black Hospitals in America: History, Contributions and Demise. Offering a stirring and in-depth look at more than 500 Black hospitals and hospital care facilities of the 20th century. 

 

With this text, Wesley has skillfully culminated a career of more than three decades of extensive study and research to bring a sharper focus to the role of Black hospitals in shaping today’s health care delivery systems. Adjoining each chapter, the reader finds information about the development and rich history of public and private Black hospitals in America.  There is also a detailed listing of institutions, projects, and relative timelines which helps to answer pertinent questions surrounding contributions during this vitally important era.

 

“Generations of men and women have dedicated their lives to these treasured institutions. Through the pages of Black Hospitals in America: History, Contributions and Demise, I hope to be able to share historic highlights and achievements made by Black health-care professionals and the realities that have ultimately eliminated traditional black hospitals in America,” notes author Nathaniel Wesley, Jr., MHA, FACHE. “This publication should be used in teaching the history of hospitals in academic institutions.”
