Bellevue Hospital's existence can be traced back to a small infirmary built in the 1660s on New York's Manhattan Island. What was once not much more than a final destination for those sickened with yellow fever persisted over the centuries to become one of the country's most respected public hospitals. Throughout its storied history, Bellevue was at the center of many controversies, a leader in innovative medical practices—and a hotbed for disease and death. Join Dr. David Oshinsky on a tour of this crucial landmark (from its tenure as a soldier's hospital to its treatment of an Ebola patient in 2014), a journey that traces the history and advancement of medicine in America—and the world.
