Boston Jewish Hospital Dedicates New Floor in $7,500,000 Program

The first complete facility forming part of a $7,500,000 development program was dedicated here yesterday by Beth Israel Hospital. The facility consists of the Jacob Ziskind floor of the Yamins Research Building at the hospital.

Mr. Ziskind, who died in 1950, had given $130,000 to launch the hospital’s capital funds drive in 1948. After his death, the trustees of his estate gave the hospital an endowment fund that amounts now to more than $600,000. An additional $150,000 was given by the Ziskind Charitable Trust to the current development fund.

Speaking at the dedication of the Ziskind Floor, Mrs. Norman L. Cahners, chairman of the dedication committee, declared that “it seems especially fitting that the first facility to be dedicated is concerned with research, which provides the key to progress.”
