Provident Hospital-Black History Is Everyone’s History
Where We All Come From
Did you know that Provident Hospital in Chicago was the first U.S. hospital operated by Blacks? Founded by Daniel Hale Williams, the first Black doctor to perform open-heart surgery, Provident was established to train Black doctors and nurses and to give Black people a place to seek professional care. Provident Hospital is still open today.
