The Michael Reese Hospital was founded in 1881, and was located in Chicago, Illinois. The hospital was mostly a teaching hospital, as well as a center for research. Several important discoveries were made at this hospital, including the Polio Vaccine as well as the first to have an infant incubator. In 2009, the hospital was officially demolished beginning in 2009, and was completed in 2012. It was this Hospital that Roberta Carter completed her two years of residency at in her training to become a doctor.
