A Descriptive Study of the Development of the John T. Mather Memorial Hospital at Port Jefferson, N. Y. in Relation to the Community Which It Serves
Background of Study. "Whenever people, as individuals or in family groups, have congregated to form a community, certain provisions have been developed for the care of the sick within their community and even in primitive societies certain cautions and preventative measures are maintained for the preservation of good health, even as in the more elaborate aspects of preventative medicine as we know it today. Institutions known as hospitals, have developed since the Early Middle Ages through to modern times under varying auspices. Through the early Christian era, the Middle Ages and to the time of the Reformation hospital practice and procedure in the Western World developed under the auspices of the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
