This Week in Temple History
January 30, 1992

   Temple University Hospital turned 100 years old. The original hospital was dedicated on Jan. 30, 1892, as a 20-bed unit in a Victorian house. It was founded in 1891 on the principle that healing should be available to all persons regardless of their finances. Founder Russell Conwell christened it “The Samaritan.” Peter A.B. Widener donated two horses to pull a carriage that was the hospital’s first ambulance. In 1930, the hospital’s name was changed from Samaritan to Temple University Hospital.
