Barnes-Jewish Hospital is a member of BJC HealthCare, one of the nation’s largest health-care organizations. Barnes-Jewish HealthCare was created by the 1996 merger of Barnes Hospital and The Jewish Hospital of St. Louis. Each hospital brought a rich tradition of excellence. Barnes Hospital opened in 1914 and became one of the first medical teaching centers in the United States. Jewish Hospital opened in 1902 to care for St. Louis’ growing immigrant population.


Barnes-Jewish HealthCare is one of the largest not for profit health care organizations in the US. Barnes Jewish HealthCare at Washington University Medical Center is the largest hospital in Missouri and the largest private employer in the St. Louis region.
