Today’s American hospital is in jeopardy, as closings continue nationwide.

Lost Hospital traces the histories of over one hundred hospitals from their inception to demise, offering a case-by-case study of American medical facilities that have been borne out of necessity and then forced to shut their doors due to fluctuations in our nation’s health care system over time. By understanding the stories behind hospitals we have lost, we are better prepared to protect those institutions that serve us today.
