The Rockefeller Hospital has always been well -equipped to serve its patients. The May 24, 1937, issue of TIME magazine noted: "No patient's money is any good at the Rockefeller Institute Hospital. Everything is free. All the Institute asks is that its patients bring a disease on which the staff is currently working to inform the medical world...The hospital's standing invitation reads: Suitable patients may be referred to the hospital by physicians and others who are interested...An ambulance will be sent when necessary."
