Fund to Facilitate Hospital Payment

Download PDF for this date

A group payment plan to enable wage earners and small-salaried workers to pay for hospital care and thus avoid the stigma of being classed as charity patients will shortly be put into operation under sponsorship of the United Hospital Fund of New York, it was announced Friday.

The plan was recommended to representatives of eighty hospitals in Greater New York at a meeting in the Blumenthal Auditorium of Mount Sinai Hospital. A charter has been granted by the Secretary of State to a new corporation, the Associated Hospital Service of New York, which is now working out the details of organization and contracts.


The Jewish Students Congress, an affiliate of the Youth Division of the American Jewish Congress, comprised of students of various colleges in New York, will hold its initial fall meeting this evening in the Kaufman Lounge of the Young Men’s Hebrew Association, Ninety-second street and Lexington avenue. The principal speaker of the evening will be Dr. Joshua Goldberg, National Director of the American Jewish Congress, who will make his first appearance under Congress auspices since his election last week.
