Abstract
  • This book describes a visit to a number of hospitals and other institutions in the Eastern States of America by a delegation from Charing Cross Hospital. The delegation held the view that the management of health is a problem which should know no national boundaries and which must be a matter for international research and experiment. They learned from their experiences that a new hospital of any size becomes immediately a matter of international interest wherever it is built, and it is of first importance that it should be seen by as many people as possible so that they may learn from its mistakes as well as appraise its innovations. They felt that progress can only come by such active exploration, for methods of treatment continually change and the structure of the hospital must of necessity reflect its functions.
