Editor's NoteWhen immigrants passed through Ellis Island, infirm individuals were often sent to a nearby hospital, separated from their families until they either healed or died. Often understaffed and filled to the brim with would-be citizens from all over the world, the hospital dutifully served as many patients as possible. This in-depth documentary looks back at the days before antibiotics and medical technology, and examines the key role the Ellis Island hospital played in welcoming scores of immigrants to America?s shores.
