In March 1913, Cook County laid the cornerstone of the County Hospital, a key medical resource for Chicago's poor. This two-block long Beaux Arts style building was home to the nation's first blood bank, and provided low-cost medical care to uninsured patients. The hospital's mission is, "To provide a Comprehensive Program of Quality Health Care with Respect and Dignity, to the residents of Cook County, regardless of their ability to pay."
