Also see . . . The Jewish Hospital. Started with just 22 beds in 1866, in 1952 the Jewish Hospital merged with two others in the city—Mount Sinai and Northern Liberties hospitals. Taking on the name of renowned scientist Albert Einstein—who graciously gave his permission —the new network eventually grew to what it is today: a private, not-for-profit organization with several major hospitals, many outpatient centers and numerous primary care and specialty care locations throughout the Philadelphia region.
