The Booth Maternity Center, founded in 1971 with the support of The Salvation Army, was a dedicated maternity hospital for all women. Named after The Salvation Army’s founders, Catherine and William Booth, the 18-bed hospital in the Overbrook section of Philadelphia revolutionized the medical world’s approach to childbirth in southeastern Pennsylvania, and served as a model for future health care for pregnant women throughout the nation.
