If you would like to order any of the images on this page, or another image belonging to the Pennsylvania Hospital Historic Collections, please view the ordering information for details.

As the Pennsylvania Hospital Image Collection contains nearly 21,000 images, it would be impossible to exhibit all of them online. If you do not see the image you are looking for in this gallery, but believe the Pennsylvania Hospital owns the image you seek, please contact the Hospital Archivist for assistance.
