Hope on the Hill
The First Century of Seattle Children's Hospital
She organized a board of like-minded Seattle women and in 1908 opened an eight-bed treatment and recovery facility. Today Seattle Children’s is a regional medical center, a leader in pediatric medicine research, and is consistently ranked among the top 10 children’s hospitals in the nation. This book recounts the history of a remarkable institution and its impact on Seattle and on the thousands of patients it has served.
Seattle historian Walt Crowley was the author of more than a dozen books and a cofounder of HistoryLink.org. David W. Wilma, former HistoryLink.org deputy director, is a freelance writer.
About the Authors
"A coffee-table-style book so well written and illustrated that it should be a best-seller."—Columbia
"'Hope' does a nice job weaving historical narrative, personal stories and old and modern photos into Children's story… 'Hope on the Hill' will come as revelation and maybe a reaffirmation of Anne Frank's words: 'In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.'."—City Living
