Sloane Hospital for Women

Founded in 1886 as Sloane Maternity Hospital with a donation by William D. Sloane and his wife, Emily Thorn Vanderbilt Sloane, to the College of Physicians and Surgeons (P&S).  Sloane opened on the P&S campus at West 59th Street and Amsterdam Avenue in January, 1888. Besides providing low-cost obstetric care, the Hospital served as a teaching facility for P&S students. The present name was adopted in 1910 and a gynecological service was added in 1911.  As part of the agreement of affiliation between Columbia University and Presbyterian Hospital, the University agreed to divest itself of its clinical units, and in 1925 Sloane Hospital became the obstetric and gynecological service of Presbyterian. With the opening of the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in 1928, Sloane occupied three floors in the new Presbyterian Hospital building.  The obstetric/gynecology service remains known as Sloane Hospital for Women and is also the department of obstetrics and gynecology of the College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Auxiliary Annual Reports

The Vanderbilt Clinic Auxiliary was organized in 1908 to raise funds for and take charge of three departments associated with the Clinic: the Visiting Nurse Service, the Social Service Dept., and the Day Camp for tuberculosis patients.  It was an entirely female enterprise with many of the members being the wives of physicians on the Clinic staff.
