CLEVELAND (Nov. 2)
A $750,000 pledge to the Mount Sinai Hospital Development Fund here has been made by the hospital’s medical staff. The pledge, to be paid over a five-year period, was adopted by a vote of the membership of the Medical Society, an organization of the medical staff. It is believed to be the largest amount ever subscribed by a medical staff of comparable size to a hospital building fund.
The pledge is part of a plan for physician participation in the fund worked out by a special committee of doctors. Individual gifts toward the pledge will be based partly on certain minimums and partly on the degree to which each contributing physician utilizes the hospital’s facilities. Mt. Sinai’s development program provides for the construction of a new ten-story building adjacent to the present main hospital structure.
