The Blockley Almshouse, later known as Philadelphia General Hospital, was a charity hospital and poorhouse located in West Philadelphia. It originally opened in 1732-3 in a different part of the city as the Philadelphia Almshouse (not to be confused with the Friends' Almshouse, established in 1713). Philadelphia General Hospital closed in 1977.

Philadelphia General Hospital in Southern VictoryEdit

Philadelphia General Hospital was the hospital closest to the 1944 superbomb explosion in Philadelphia to survive the blast. The Joint Committee on the Conduct of the War toured the hospital to view survivors of the attack. The group was told of the risks of the airborne poisons by a doctor, who thought they were "ghouls" for touring the area. The committee members were horrified by the injuries sustained by the survivors of the bomb.
