Provident Hospital: A Living Legacy


Provident Hospital is a remarkable facility. To illustrate its fascinating and very moving history, a 43-page monograph, Provident Hospital: A Living Legacy, was commissioned by the Provident Foundation in 1997. This publication is dedicated to the memory of the late publisher of the Chicago Defender, John H.H. Sengstacke. The rich history of Provident Hospital spans the 20th Century and is closely connected to most of the century's racially motivated turmoil. The publication is interesting to read and filled with details about the hospital's emergence and growth.
