After more than seven years of planning, and three years of construction, Barnes Hospital opened on December 7, 1914 at a cost of 1.25 million dollars, nearly all of which was privately funded.

  At the time, there were only a small handful of hospitals of similar caliber anywhere in the world.  Barnes Hospital was one of the most well-funded, best equipped, best staffed, and best designed hospitals in the country when it opened.  It was easily the nicest facility in the region, and it was probably the nicest in the country.

An exhibit celebrating the Barnes Hospital centennial is on display now in the Archives and Rare Books Glaser Gallery, located on the 7th floor of the Becker Library.  This free exhibit featuring photographs, documents, and artifacts from the 1914 grand opening may be viewed during regular library hours.
