The Free Hospital for Women was established in Boston, Mass. in 1875 by Dr. William Henry Baker, J.H. Storer, and J.P. Reynolds as a facility dedicated to the medical treatment of poor women. The institution relocated to Brookline, Mass. in 1896 and established a training school for nurses. In 1965, the Free Hospital for Women merged with the Boston Lying-In Hospital, in cooperation with Harvard Medical School, to form the Boston Hospital for Women. In 1975, the Boston Hospital for Women merged with the Peter Bent Brigham and Robert Breck Brigham Hospitals, two other Harvard Medical School teaching affiliates, essentially to form Brigham and Women's Hospital.
