Louisville’s Jewish Hospital opened in 1905 as a modest means of providing quality medical care and training to underserved immigrants and aspiring doctors. Throughout the twentieth century, it became a national leader in research, practice, and patient care. This panel discussion assembles luminaries from Jewish Hospital to reflect on matters as diverse as business, culture, surgery, and spirituality, and to explore this beloved institution’s impact on Louisville and beyond. The panel will feature the following members of the Jewish Hospital community:

  • Morris M. Weiss, MD, Cardiologist, Jewish Hospital Cardiovascular Institute Board
  • Laman A. Gray, Jr., MD, Executive and Medical Director of the University of Louisville and Jewish Hospital Cardiovascular Innovation Institute
