Woman's Hospital (Baton Rouge, La.). In the 1950s, 19 physicians in Louisiana wanted to build a specialty hospital that catered specifically to the needs of women and newborns. By 1968, those physicians turned that goal into a reality, opening the doors to Woman's Hospital, one of the first U.S. specialty hospitals for women.
