This chapter assesses the impact of the black hospital movement and discusses the status of the contemporary black hospital using the historical perspective developed throughout the book. Due to the predominance of integrationism as the major strategy for racial advancement in the years following World War II, the establishments of separate black institutions were increasingly renounced. This chapter looks at how the energies of black medical organizations, even the previously separatist National Medical Association (NMA), shifted from the creation of black hospitals to the dismantlement of the “Negro medical ghetto” of which black hospitals were a major component. This, in turn, posed new challenges for black hospitals and their need for existence.

Keywords:   integrationism, black hospital movement, World War II, black medical organizations, National Medical Association
