This year has been one of great growth and great joy at LifeBridge Health. The Herman & Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai was opened to ease the pain of our littlest patients. The Households at Levindale was built to improve the quality of daily life for our elders, and Northwest Hospital made major renovations so medical care could be given in a state-of-the-art facility for people of all ages.
However, to truly appreciate how far we've come, we must take a step back in time and look at a history filled with people who saw a need and championed health care for the frail, sick and elderly.
