Biography/History

The Loeb Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation Project was established in 1963 under the leadership of Mrs. Lydia E. Hall. The project was based upon Mrs. Hall's concepts for a facility which would admit patients from acute hospital units who were no longer in physiological crisis but still required nursing care/medical supervision on a 24-hour basis as well as daily evaluation. Drawing from the various sciences, Hall developed a concept of nursing which she identified as a "process of nurturing", i.e. fostering the growth and development of individuals and thereby achieving wellness.
