National Jewish Health is known worldwide for treatment of patients with respiratory, cardiac, immune and related disorders, and for groundbreaking medical research. Founded in 1899 as a nonprofit hospital, National Jewish Health remains the only facility in the world dedicated exclusively to these disorders. Since 1998, U.S. News & World Report has ranked National Jewish Health the #1 respiratory hospital in the nation.
The Arthur B. Lorber Award is named for the son of Fannie Lorber, who in 1907 founded the Denver Sheltering Home as an orphanage for Jewish children. As "The Home" evolved from an orphanage into an asthma treatment center, Arthur was the visionary who combined compassionate care with ground-breaking research and thus created the premier treatment center for respiratory diseases in the country. The clinical and research programs that Arthur set in motion, which became part of National Jewish Health when "The Home" merged with National Jewish Hospital and Research Center in the mid-1970s, have helped millions of people around the world.
