The Johns Hopkins: 100 Years of Caring


This documentary spans the Johns Hopkins' century of operation - from 1889 when it cost $2 a night, to the present, where a single piece of diagnostic equipment can cost two million dollars. The program goes behind the scenes inside this world-famous medical institution; from the kitchen where three million meals are prepared every year to the operating rooms where bone marrow is harvested and neurosurgeons do brain operations. This special follows a series of patients to give a close look a their hospital experience and explores the caring that is associated with the medical technology. Rare historic photographs and unique film footage of the hospital's operations during the 1930s are included. Hosted by Susan White-Bowden. 60 minutes.
