City of Hope: The Beginning
In 1913, a dedicated group of men and women came together to form the Jewish Consumptive Relief Association. Launching a tuberculosis sanatorium outside of Los Angeles, they offered care for those in need, regardless of race or religion. By the mid-1940s, tuberculosis was on the decline in the United States.
The hospital found itself at a crossroads. Rather than close the treatment center’s doors, Executive Director Samuel Golter helped transform the institution into a full-fledged national medical center, complete with research, education and clinical treatment capabilities for the world’s deadliest diseases.
City of Hope: Today
Now, 100 years after its inception, City of Hope is an innovative biomedical research, treatment and educational institution.
