This collection includes items relating to BJC Health System (later BJC HealthCare), with a particular focus on the hospitals of the Washington University Medical Campus and Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Though the collection is mainly composed of items dating from just before and following the creation of Barnes-Jewish, Inc. in March of 1993, there are also some items included for organizational purposes from Barnes Hospital and Jewish Hospital prior to their affiliation and eventual merger in 1996. Of particular note are the biographical files ( series 2) of prominent Barnes Hospital, Jewish Hospital, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, and BJC HealthCare employees, affiliates, and volunteers. Also significant are the Barnes-Jewish Hospital Board of Directors materials ( series 4), which include those from the first year of Barnes-Jewish Hospital’s existence following the 1996 merger, and materials relating to the merger and post-merger integration (series 10). The collection also includes publications, photographs, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, artifacts, audio-visual materials, and staff lists, as well as files related to Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital and Washington University.
