Hall

 [hawl]
Lydia E. (1906–1969) founder and first director of the Loeb Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx. Her work as a researcher and consultant at the New York Heart Association and as project director of nursing and long-term illnesses for the Division of Chronic Illnesses and Tuberculosis of the U.S. Public Health Service led her to believe that the nurse-patient relationship is therapeutic in itself and that the chief need of the chronically ill patient is professional nursing care. The establishment of the Loeb Center, providing professional nursing care in an institutional setting, enabled her to put her theories into practice.
