Friday Fun Video: The Dream Hospital of Tomorrow (as Imagined in the 1950s)
1 June, 2018
This video, circa 1957, showcases a medical dream come true from Henry Kaiser and Dr. Sidney Garfield of the Kaiser Foundation.
While many of these "dream" hospital features are now staples in every modern facility, you can't help but wonder whatever became of the sliding baby drawers (not to mention the waiting room father and unprotected X-Ray technician).
What part of the current hospital patient experience will remain 60 years from now? Our own Dr. David DiLoreto opines that, "Sixty years from now people might be amused that patients had to actually travel to facilities for consultations, physical exams, and lab services."
