Flowers Fifth Ave Hospital

My  great grandfather was on staff at Flowers from 1902-1920. I was wondering if there would be any old photos or yearbooks from back then. His name was Charles Augustus Mitchell.Thanks

Flowers Fifth Ave Hospital

My great-grandfather Frank Wengert was an "engineer" at
Flowers Hospital.  He died in 1921.  Does anyone know
where I can look for any employment records?  And, does
anyone know where we can find pictures, etc., from that era
at Flowers Hospital?

Re: Flowers Fifth Ave Hospital

I was born in Flower Fifth Avenue Hospital in 1957.  Is this where Mt. Sinai is located now?

Re: Flowers Fifth Ave Hospital

Hi Kathy. I just Google searched "Flower Fifth Avenue Hospital in 1957" and found this, among more info.

"The Center's tradition of providing compassionate medical treatment began in 1890 with its predecessor institution, Flower Free Surgical Hospital, then associated with New York Medical College. In 1938, Flower Hospital and New York Medical College merged with Fifth Avenue Hospital at the Center's present site on Fifth Avenue and 106th Street."
From: ArchCare dot org

I was born in 1956 in Misericordia Hospital when it was on E 86th near York ave.
My family lives in Queens, but that was my Mom's Doc's "home hospital" at the time.

I'd like to join Sal with a hearty welcome to this message board, and please keep your memories flowing!

Hi Mike

I remember hearing my parents talking about Misericordia Hospital but didn't realize it was located on 86th Street. The only hospital I remember in that area was Doctor's Hospital on East End Avenue and 87th Street.  I think this is now part of Beth Israel Hospital.

Re: Flowers Fifth Ave Hospital

My father, Herbert J. Simon was on the staff of Flower Fifth Ave. Hospital from at least 1939 (if not earlier).  He was an Ob/Gyn. My sister was born there in 1944 and I in 1946.  Funny story!!  He delivered me in the hall because Mother did not mention she was is labor until it was almost too late.  Twas almost a delivery in the taxi, however they got there and put her on a guerney, (no time to remove her coat)

I will see if I have any early documents that might be of interest to you all and perhaps can arrange to get them scanned and sent.

Re: Flowers Fifth Ave Hospital

Hey all I'd like any and all information about Flower Fifth Avenue Hospital that anyone would l like to share.  Not only was I born there, but it appear the hospital played a major role in New York's history.  I am particularly interested in memories, staff from 1950 to 1962; race relations; cultural information and all views - if requested I will provide my e-mail address upon conversation and request.  Thanks all
