|Title||Nurse Michi Akagi reading to Ronnie Guerin at Children's Orthopedic Hospital, Seattle, 1949 |
|Caption||In 1909, a group of Seattle women founded Children's Orthopedic Hospital. Until that time, the city had no hospital wards designed specifically for children. Until that time, sick children and adults stayed in the same wards. The hospital's first building was on Warren Avenue on Queen Anne Hill. In the 1950s, the hospital moved to the Laurelhurst area. It is now the Children's Hospital and Medical Center. |
