TO THE LEGISLATURE OF THE
STATE OF NEW YORK



The Governors of the Society of the New York
Hospital respectfully present their Annual Re-
port of the state of the Institutions under their
charge for the year 191 2, as required by law.



ANNUAL REPORT

OF THE



GOVERNORS OF THE SOCIETY OF THE NEW
YORK HOSPITAL FOR THE YEAR 1912.



In conformity with the provisions of its charter, granted *by
Royal authority June 13, 1771, in the reign of King George III.,
the Governors of the Society of the New York Hospital present
their Annual Report, consisting of the report of the Treasurer and
of the several institutions under their control and management,
as follows:

The Hospital at Fifteenth Street, the Private Hospital at Six-
teenth Street, the House of Relief at Hudson Street, the department
for the treatment of mental diseases, known as Bloomingdale Hos-
pital, and the Convalescent Cottages at White Plains, Westchester
County.

The number of individuals who received care and treatment in
all departments during the past year was 67,037 as compared with
64,677 for the year 1911, as appears in the statistical reports hereto
annexed. These numbers may be classified as follows:

1912 1911
Treated in the City op New York:

In Wards and Private Rooms 17,790 15,591

In Out-Patient Departments 39,929 40,814

Treated by Ambulance Surgeons and not brought to the Hos-
pitals 7,798 6,982

Treated in Westchester County:

In the Psychopathic Department 535 498

In the Convalescent Homes 985 792

67,037 64,677

In consequence of the increased amount of work performed, and
the increased cost of supplies of all sorts, the expenses were largely
increased in all departments of the institution. It has also been
necessary during the past year to make some extensive renewals,
notably at Bloomingdale, where the electric wiring system has
been overhauled and other important additions and improvements
are in progress.

On the other hand, the payments for patients' board, and the
receipts from the out-patient departments and sundries, have like-
wise increased; and we have also (for the first time) received pay-
ments from the City of New York for our local ambulance service.

15



Annual Report
of Governors.

The following comparative table shows the totals of current
expenditures and receipts from income:

1912 1911 Increase

Exoenditures $705,924.96 $654,644.97 $51,279.99

Receipts from Patients, etc 418,475.14 379,007.88 39,467.26

Operating Cost 287,449.82 275,637.09 11,812.73

Rents, Interest and Sundry Receipts... 246,897.41 264,600.19 17,702.78 *

Deficit $40,552.41 $11,036.90 $29,515.51

* Decrease.

The Society during the past year has received the following gifts
and legacies:

From Mrs. George G. DeWitt, for endowing a bed in memory of her

late husband $5,000.00

From the Estate of Catherine E. Daly, for endowing a bed 5,000 . 00

From Estate of Charles Bathgate Beck, final distribution of the residu-
ary estate of the testator 20,282 . 08

From Mrs. Charles E. Sherman and others to constitute the Thomas
Newbold Lawrence Fund, given by his nieces and nephews, the an-
nual income therefrom to be used in the work of the social service of
the New York Hospital, in memory of Thomas Newbold Lawrence
of New York, son of John Burling Lawrence, who, from 1808 to 1845,
was a Governor of this Hospital 10,000.00

From Mr. J. Woodward Haven (one of the Governors), to establish a

Dental Clinic in connection with the Out-Patient Department 2,000. 00

In addition, the Society received on the last day of the year the
sum of $250,000.00 from Mr. George F. Baker, one of the Governors.
This generous gift is intended to effect an affiliation between the
New York Hospital and Cornell University Medical College, with
the object of promoting medical research, aiding the care of
patients in the Hospital and furthering the education of students
in the College.

It is believed that by bringing to the study of the cases in the
Hospital the aid of the facilities provided by the fully organized
and equipped College laboratories, more accurate knowledge of the
diseases can be gained and better treatment can be given to the
individual patients; and the opportunities for the study of disease
can be utilized by bringing to the aid of the attending staff the
equipment and specialized training of the College staff in the
Departments of Physiology, Pathology and Chemistry. At the
same time the training of the students can be aided by their admis-
sion to the wards for observation of patients, under the direction of
the Hospital staff.

Arrangements to carry into effect Mr. Baker's intentions have

Annual Report
of Governors.

been made with the authorities of Cornell University, and it is
expected that the plan will shortly be in full operation.

In the last Annual Report it was stated that the Society had
acquired practically all the block between Fifty-fourth and Fifty-
fifth Streets and Eleventh and Twelfth Avenues for a new site for
the main hospital. The property, however, was not fully paid for
until the early part of the year 1912, and these payments have
necessitated the sale of income-producing property, which has
caused a falling off in receipts of rents, interest, etc., as noted above.

The preliminary studies for the buildings intended to be erected
on this property have been completed and tentative plans have
been prepared. These plans exhibit a hospital of about four hun-
dred beds with all the useful adjuncts of Out-Patient Department,
laboratories, etc., which (by relatively small additions and altera-
tions) can be easily expanded into a six-hundred bed hospital. The
final development of the plans has been delayed, partly because of
the uncertainty as to the action of the City authorities in regard
to proposed changes along the water front in that neighborhood.

Early in the year Mr. Elbridge T. Gerry, one of the Governors
of the Hospital, resigned after a service of over thirty-four years;
and Dr. Frank Hartley, one of the Attending Staff, resigned on the
1st of December, after a service of over twenty years.

The Society has also lost by death Mr. George G. DeWitt, who
had been a Governor since 1892; and Mr. William W. Hoppin, a
Governor since 1878, who died on January 3, 1913 — just after the
close of the year. Resolutions adopted by the Board in relation
to the deaths of these gentlemen are appended hereto.

Attention is called to the fact that the statistical reports
annexed cover all the institutions under the management of the
Society.

President.

GEORGE GOSMAN DEWITT
Died January 12, 1912.

George Gosman DeWitt, a Governor of the New
York Hospital for the past twenty years, died on January
12, 1912, at his home in this City, in the sixty-seventh
year of his age.

After graduating from Columbia College and the
Columbia Law School, Mr. DeWitt entered the law
office of his uncles, and with them, and subsequently as
the senior member of the firm which succeeded them, he
continued successfully the oldest established law practice
in the City of New York. His clients were numerous,
and he represented with fidelity and skill for over forty
years many large and complicated interests. He was a
Director of several of the most important banking insti-
tutions in this City, and also a Trustee of Roosevelt Hos-
pital and of Columbia College.

Elected a member of the Board of Governors of this
Society in 1892, he served with diligence and fidelity upon
the various committees of the Board and took an active
interest, up to the time of his death, in the welfare of the
institution.

No memorial of Mr. DeWitt would be complete with-
out a reference to the kindly and genial disposition which
has made his death felt as a personal loss in many and
varied circles in this city.

On motion, it was

Resolved that the foregoing memorial be entered upon
the Minutes of the Governors of the Society and that a
copy be sent to the widow of Mr. DeWitt.

WILLIAM WARNER HOPPIN
Died January 3, 1913.

William Warner Hoppin, who died at his home in
this City on Friday, January 3, 1913, was born in Provi-
dence on December 15, 1839. He graduated from Brown
University in 1861 and soon afterwards entered the Col-
lege of Physicians and Surgeons in this City, and obtained
the degree of M. D. in the spring of 1864. He served as
assistant surgeon in the United States Army during the
last months of the Civil War and was also for a time an
interne of this Hospital. He felt, however, attracted
toward the legal profession and entered the Columbia
Law School, from which he graduated in 1869; and thus
his education peculiarly fitted him to be of service in
dealing with the problems which must always confront
those charged with the responsibilities of a large metro-
politan hospital.

Mr. Hoppin was elected a Governor in the year 1877
to take the place of his father-in-law, Mr. James W. Beek-
man. During the period of more than thirty-five years,
in which Mr. Hoppin served the Hospital as Governor,
he was always keenly interested in its welfare, and his
warm and sympathetic nature led him to look constantly
upon the humanitarian aspects of its work. He naturally
also took a profound interest in its educational work, and
particularly in the training of nurses, in which this Hos-
pital has been so preeminently successful.

The members of the Board of Governors will greatly
miss his valuable and enlightening comments on the sub-
jects under their consideration, and will always retain
the recollection of his most sympathetic and kindly
nature.

Resolved that the foregoing be entered upon the Minutes
of the Board and that a copy be sent to the widow of our
late associate.

[Extract from the Minutes of the Board of Governors,
January 7, 1913.]
