What was recorded by the hospital president in 1948 still burns brightly as the hospital’s guiding star for the future:

“The Children’s Hospital exists to treat the sick and injured, to help in the medical and surgical training of students to the end that there will always be an ample supply of soundly-trained doctors, surgeons, and nurses, and to help by research to push forward the frontiers of medical, surgical, and nursing knowledge and skills. ...Our objective is, of course, to perform better and better as the years pass. Complacency cannot be afforded.”

Pittsburgh in 1990: Revitalized. Renaissance. Information. Service. Software institutes. Technology engineers. Glistening skylines. Entrepreneurs.

“America’s most livable city.”
