Nurse and Patients at National Jewish Hospital

A philanthropic woman committed to Jewish and general charitable work, Seraphine Pisko ran the National Jewish Hospital in Denver, Colorado, for nearly thirty years. Here, several male patients are lying on the hospital porch experiencing "open-air treatment." A uniformed nurse takes one patient's temperature and pulse.
