More than the story of one of the oldest hospitals in the country, BELLEVUE recounts the history of modern medicine, the development of public health policy, and the treatment of humankind's deadliest diseases. Fred Sanders narrates in a deep, clear voice, allowing the drama of the text to speak for itself. Sanders's reserved expression and unrushed pacing provide ample space for listeners to absorb this fascinating account of innovative surgeons, daring ambulance drivers, strong-willed nurses, and puzzling medical conditions. Although the New York hospital has been the target of bad press over the years, especially after Nellie Bly's scathing report on its psych ward, Bellevue has survived scandal and city politics, remaining faithful to its almshouse mission to provide quality care to all patients regardless of socioeconomic status.
