The archives of the Hospital remain an unbroken series from 1751 to 1978. They provide a unique resource for students in the history of hospital development, health care and medicine.

The collection includes personal papers of hospital practitioners as well as the records of affiliates absorbed by Pennsylvania Hospital such as the Philadelphia Dispensary, the Preston Retreat, the Southern Dispensary, the Philadelphia Lying-In Charity, the Maternity Hospital, the Nurse Charity, and the Humane Society.
