Documents the administrative functions of the Medical Center and its predecessors, the Baby Hospital Association and the Children's Hospital Association of the East Bay. Included are Board and committee minutes, financial records and planning documents.
The Baby Hospital Association (organized September 1912) and the Baby Hospital Association of Alameda County (organized September 1913), predecessors to The Children's Hospital of the East Bay were founded by a group of women interested in providing medical care for babies and young children whose parents or guardians were able to pay little or nothing. The hospital, located at Fifty-first and Dover Streets in Oakland, California was dedicated on September 16, 1914. In addition to caring for sick babies and children in its hospital, the Association maintained outpatient clinics for both sick and well children, and provided maternity and visiting nurse care as a service to the community. Now the Children's Hospital Medical Center, the hospital has been in operation for nearly a century.
