1950s Hospital Of The Future, A Modern Medical Dream Come True

Envisioned by Henry J. Kaiser (yes, that Kaiser) and designed by Kaiser Permanente’s founding physician, Dr. Sidney Garfield, this black and white video shows the ‘hospital of the future’, 1950s style. Marvel at the doctor’s ability to get a patient’s medical record, via pneumatic tube technology, before he sees the actual patient. Streamlined and expedited! Mothers with newborns, your dream to stuff your child in a transparent filing cabinet drawer and call for it at your whim is fulfilled! And Dads, not to worry, the hospital has made all kinds of modern accommodations for you too.

It is a medical dream come true!
