Bellevue by David Oshinsky
Bellevue by David Oshinsky is a very well written history of the famous Bellevue hospital in New York City. This book is wonderful taking us through one of the nation’s oldest and largest public hospitals in the one and only New York City.
Bellevue is wonderfully written telling the Bellevue story in detail while it also in part tells the story of the evolution of American medicine from archaic butchery to the innovative high tech science of today.
The author masterfully tells the detailed story of Bellevue including the many key figures that shaped it while at the same time including the macro issues of politics, funding, and more that give it full context.
A fascinating historical work for all history buffs, as well as those interested in medicine, to enjoy. So as usual Hit The Books, They Don’t Hit Back!
