Identifier: MS-7

  • Staff Only

Scope and Contents

The Hospital Executive Director's Office (HEDO) papers are composed of 61 boxes of archival material, including photographs and manuscripts. The HEDO collection documents the history of the University of Virginia Hospital, its physical grounds, its staff, its policies, and operating procedures with some records that go back to 1919. One of the most important aspects of this collection are the Minutes of the Executive Committee of the UVa Hospital, which date back to 1920. The HEDO collection also boasts the minutes from many of the Hospital Committees set up to monitor particular issues germane to hospital administration. Among the hospital committees whose minutes are included in the HEDO collection are the Preventorium Committee, the Civil Rights Committee, the Infections Committee, the Accreditation Advisory Committee, the Clinical Staff Committee, the Administrative Staff Committee, the Medical Advisory Committee, and the Governor's Committee on Nursing. Documents from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals covering the 1950s through the 1980s, as well as the American College of Surgeons Hospital Standardization Scoring Report for 1948, are included.

Other highlights of the HEDO collection include statistical records of the number of patients admitted to the UVa Hospital every year, the number of operations performed each year, as well as rates for various medical services. The HEDO Collection contains a wealth of information on the University of Virginia Hospital, from the mundane (e.g. the menus for the hospital's cafeteria), to the sublime (including policy statements on controversial issues such as sterilization, abortion, and civil rights).
