  • Fordham Hospital was the first public hospital in the Bronx, New York City, having opened in 1892. Prior to that time, all the New York City municipal hospitals were in Manhattan. It was located in the Fordham, Bronx section of the Bronx on Valentine Avenue near Kingsbridge Road, which at the time was a relatively undeveloped area, and inconvenient for patients and their families. It moved to Aqueduct Avenue and St. James Place in 1898. On May 11, 1907, the hospital moved to a 4 acre (1.6 ha) location just northwest of the intersection of Southern Boulevard and Crotona Avenue, adjacent to what was then St. John's College, now Fordham University. The architect was Raymond F. Almirall. The hospital and university were affiliated at least to the extent of sharing the hospital president, who was also the dean of Fordham's medical school, which opened in 1913. In the mid-1930s, the Federal Art Project sponsored interior murals by artists Emily Newton Barto and . The hospital was closed on July 15, 1976, by a decision of the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, despite extensive community protests, including a sit-in. The building was demolished soon afterward. The site is now The Fordham University Rose Hill Parking Facility. (en)
