TitleHealth Care Institutions
AbstractPortion of chapter, "School, Church, and Health", describes the development of health care institutions for African Americans. Old City Hospital or General Hospital #2 was "a point of pride for many African Americans". When a fire gutted it in 1927, a new hospital was constructed just west of General Hospital #1 and opened on March 2, 1930. Also discussed are Niles Home for Children, Florence Crittenton Home, and Big Sister Home for Negro Girls as well as general health considerations for Kansas City's African Americans.
