For many years the treatment of tuberculosis has been centered in sanatoria established for that purpose and for the most part away from the larger cities. As medical treatment for this disease became more definite and surgical procedures more common, the existence of such institutions out in the country presented certain handicaps in relation to the availability of highly specialized physicians who are most frequently found associated with general hospitals in urban communities. This piece explores the experience of the Jewish Charities of Chicago, which implemented recommendations for the integration of the sanatorium treatment of the Winfield Tuberculosis Service with the hospital program of Michael Reese Hospital.
