The National Medical Association (NMA) was one of the organizations actively involved in the campaign to open up hospitals to black staff. The establishment of the National Hospital Association (NHA), to ensure proper standards of education and efficiency in black hospitals launched the black hospital movement. This chapter describes the work and strategies of the National Medical Association and the National Hospital Association to improve black hospitals. It also explores the controversy in Harlem on whether a black hospital should be built and how this demonstrated that not all black physicians supported the activities of these medical societies.
