More About The Bethesda Hospital
It is one of the oldest children's hospital in Budapest and the only Christian children's hospital in Middle and Eastern Europe. German Filia of the Reformed Church founded the institute in 1866 and the Philadelphia Deaconess Mother House ran it for decades until 1938. The first nurses came from Kaisersweth Germany. That was the school where later Florence Nightingale studied and she was the person who had founded many nursing schools later on.
