Menorah Medical Center had me out this morning to discuss their planned expansion, and get a feel for what I would do as a consultant. Simple. Menorah opened in 1936, and was the only white hospital to admit non-whites, especially in emergency cases. Because other hospitals during that time–right up to the early 60s–turned away non-whites in emergency cases, many people died. I feel the new works should reflect Menorah’s openness and history of the same.
They seemed to agree.
