barnes jewish hospital


If you’ve visited Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO recently, you may have noticed the benevolent bronze gaze of Barnes Hospital’s founder, Robert A. Barnes. The St. Louis philanthropist’s bust has been watching over his hospital and its patients since the very beginning. From Barnes Hospital’s dedication in 1914 to the present day, the bust has stood guard in a number of different locations, both inside and outside the hospital.
