Alina Morris, Archivist, Boston Children’s Hospital, contributed to this post.

In 1914, Boston Children’s Hospital, then simply called The Children’s Hospital, constructed the 145-bed Hunnewell Building, joining Harvard Medical School as one of several founding members of the Longwood Medical Area.

As the hospital’s oldest continuously occupied building, Hunnewell has presided over many of the century’s great medical advances and innovations. We celebrate a portion of them in this slideshow honoring Hunnewell’s 100th anniversary—and invite you to help write the next 100 years of history October 30-31 at Boston Children’s Global Pediatric Innovation Summit + Awards 2014.
