Philadelphia General Hospital

During its 92 years of operation, the Philadelphia General Hospital Training School for Nurses graduated 6,000 professional nurses. Graduates wore the double frill cap, known as the Blockley Frill, which is an enduring symbol of the prestige and reputation of nurses who performed the art and science of nursing service and education. The last patient was discharged from Philadelphia General Hospital on June 16, 1977. Today, the Philadelphia General Hospital lives on at Neumann, in our School of Nursing and Health Sciences' Endowed Nursing Lecture Series.
