Celebrating 100 Years of Mind, Medicine, Healing, Hope

Building: Henry Phipps Clinic 2013

It began with a generous gift, a magnificent building, and a leader with an innovative mission. It became a home for pioneers and launched generations of clinicians, teachers, and researchers.Today it remains on the cutting edge of scientific investigation into the causes of psychiatric illnesses and the search for better treatments.

The building of the Phipps Clinic in 1913 represented a shift in American psychiatry from isolated asylums to providing humane care in a medical clinic attached to a teaching hospital. The beautiful building’s presence next to The Johns Hopkins Hospital made psychiatry visible and a full partner in the medical discovery of the era. In 2013, the joys and challenges of the next 100 years will mean the further push of scientific and social boundaries to fully understand these common and debilitating illnesses.
