"It is not easy to be a pioneer - but oh, it is fascinating! I would not trade one moment, even the worst moment, for all the riches in the world."
Elizabeth Blackwell ( 1821 - 1910 ) - Despite widespread opposition, she decided to attend medical college and graduated first in her class, thus also becoming the first woman to receive her M.D. in the United States. She created a medical school for women.
She opened a clinic that became known as the New York Dispensary for Poor Women and Children. With help from her sister and fellow doctor Emily Blackwell, who worked as a surgeon, and physician Marie Zakrzewska, Elizabeth Blackwell also established the New York Infirmary for Indigent Women and Children.
Elizabeth Blackwell was a physician and educator, a pioneer and an innovator who was not afraid of obstacles and fought for a better world.
Our hospital fully shares the views and values of this woman and we hope that we will make noteworthy contributions to the Georgian medical field.
