FRENCH HOSPITAL Late 1800s

Hello:

One of my ancestors was born at the French Hospital in 1888.

He was of Italian heritage.

Does anyone know the following?:

Were only French patients allowed or could Italians use as well?

Is there any chance records may still exist?

Are there any photos of the hospital of that era online anywhere?

Thank you!

Re: FRENCH HOSPITAL Late 1800s

I would start off by contacting the NYC Dept. of Health at 125 Worth Street. I tried researching some issues with them dating back to 1913 and I wound up at the NY Public Library on 42nd & 5th.
I'm pretty sure French Hosptial merged with NY Polyclinic Hosptial in the 1960's-so serach both names.  Frecnh and French Polyclinic Hosptial.
Good Luck!

Re: FRENCH HOSPITAL Late 1800s

OK... How about the "french" customers

So far, I have been exporting data and working around with it in excel... But with donation receipts, its not possible

I am sure "french" customers have the same problem... Would you please tell me how to print reports using the french accents?

Anyone using the french accents, please give me a hint as well

Thank you

Re: FRENCH HOSPITAL Late 1800s

From the article that I read, the address states 6th Ave & East 50th St.

Now I'm not sure, because of the size of RC and all the buildings. lol

Michael was first to quess it,

Re: FRENCH HOSPITAL Late 1800s

The address for Polyclinic Hospital was at 50th St between 8th and 9th Aves.  It was on the North side of the street.  For awhile, across the street on the South side of 50th, was Madison Square Garden.  When the new MSG was built over Pennsylvania Terminal on 32nd St, the old one was torn down.  There was a parking lot there for quite a few years and you could see it from 49th St where I had some friends.  My father was operated on there in the 1950s and although I was very young I still remember it.  I also had dental work done in a clinic there in the 1960s.

As hospitals go it was a bit on the small side, but it was very clean and they kept it updated pretty well.  The area it was in was called "Hells Kitchen" and is now known as Clinton. 

Here are some pictures of it from the Web.

LINK #2: This is how it looks today (it's Apartments or a Co-Op - apparently Rudolph Valentino passed away there): http://www.valentinoforever.com/Polyclinic_Hospital.html

LINK #3: According to this NY Times article from 1918, the hospital went to the Columbia University (which is presently part of Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital). http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=F00D1FFD3A5F1B7A93C7A9178AD95F4C8185F9

I also found a book that has information of the earlier NY Polyclinic before this one was built: http://books.google.com/books?id=3EwCAAAAYAAJ&pg=RA1-PR13&lpg=RA1-PR13&dq=new+york+polyclinic+hospital+in+the+1880s&source=bl&ots=L5lM2SeomI&sig=BdfwkHpwoQ8iQlOY4wxHFKb9eLA&hl=en&ei=wUhLTszRBsXe0QHz3qHrBw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CB0Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false

Hope that helps.
