Scope and content
This series includes eight subseries, with each subseries devoted to a subsidiary organization in Jewish Hospital. Here, a subsidiary organization is one that is mainly or exclusively composed of staff of the Jewish Hospital. These organizations include Board and staff committees and subcommittees, as well as hospital divisions and departments with significant collections of records. Sub-series 1 contains the meeting minutes of the Medical Staff Association for the years 1913-1965 (at the time, the organization was known simply as the Medical Staff). This series also contains the meeting minutes of the Efficiency Committee, composed of both members of the medical staff and the Board, for the years 1916-1922, and of the Medical Staff Council (a committee of the Medical Staff Association). The Medical Staff Council meeting minutes run from 1965-1984, and are interfiled with the Medical Staff minutes for 1960-1965, and with the Medical Staff Association meeting minutes for the years 1966-1984.
