David P. Wohl Jr. Memorial Hospital

  • Corporate body

The David P. Wohl Jr. Memorial Hospital building was constructed in 1953. The construction was part of a wider expansion of Washington University Medical School affiliated institutions, namely Barnard Free Skin and Cancer Hospital, which received an expansion onto its original building at approximately the same time. The Wohl Memorial Hospital was a cancer research and treatment facility and had 66 beds in addition to departmental offices, a large auditorium, and laboratories for teaching and research.

The Wohl Memorial Hospital was built as an institution for private patients with a combination of grants totaling $750,000 in 1948. A federal grant from The United States Public Health Service provided $250,000 of the initial funds, and the Wohl Foundation donated $500,000. The Wohl Foundation was begun by David Philip Wohl, Sr., the founder of Wohl Shoe Company of St. Louis, and his wife Carlyn Wohl. Mr. Wohl was a well-known philanthropist and in addition to the $500,000 donated by his foundation he also personally contributed $418,271. The Wohl Memorial Hospital was constructed in honor of their son, an Air Force Lieutenant who was killed in a bombing raid over Germany in World War II. Carlyn Wohl said in an interview that Wohl Sr.’s many contributions to causes in the St. Louis area all had one root: he “wanted to relieve human suffering.”

In 1957, a donation of $2 million from the Wohl foundation provided much of the funding for a new addition to Washington University’s cancer research hospitals, the David P. Wohl Jr. – Washington University Clinics. The outpatient clinics were completed in addition to the Wohl Memorial Hospital and Barnard Free Skin and Cancer Hospital facilities in 1960.
