Members of The Miriam Hospital Women's Association celebrate more than 100 years of caring. More than 1,000 active members, including two- and three-generation families, have played a major role in founding and sustaining The Miriam Hospital.
By combining past ideals with modern ideas, we are able to achieve our goals and stimulate our future growth. Our purpose is to contribute time and energy to enhance the physical and mental well being of patients in The Miriam Hospital.
You can make a difference! Give to The Miriam Hospital Women’s Association. Your contribution will help to support and strengthen The Miriam Community.
The Jewish community of Providence in 1897 numbered approximately 1,200 families. The majority were very recent immigrants, Yiddish speaking, struggling to find a place in their new home.
To ease their transition to American life, they formed self-help organizations to augment the community structure already in existence. Among these organizations were women's groups dedicated to good works. In time each organization developed a particular purpose and niche in the community.
One group of women chose to make "Bikur Cholm," visiting the sick to offer comfort, the chief priority. From this dedication grew the dream of one day establishing a Jewish hospital, a place of healing that would be open to all people. These women were members of Miriam Lodge No. 13, order of B'rith Abraham, the founding mothers of the organization known today as The Miriam Hospital Women's Association.
How do we achieve our goals?
Dedicating an engraved brick on The Miriam Hospital's Walkway to Health is a meaningful way to celebrate an anniversary, a special occasion, or to memorialize a special individual. When you purchase a brick, you are also supporting the hospital's mission to care for the community.
The Miriam is a non-profit organization; your contributions ensure that we can continue to provide the highest quality care, including the latest advances in cardiac and cancer treatment.
The enduring Walkway to Health extends from The Miriam's main floor toward The Norman and Rosalie Fain Health Centers and The Baxt Building.

Simply More Delicious represents the best of Rhode Island's rich culinary heritage and its recipes incorporate many of our tiny state's most delicious assets-blueberries, farm fresh vegetables, fresh fish and chicken (our state bird, really).
Simply More Delicious carries on the tradition established more than 30 years ago by The Miriam Hospital's Women's Association when it published the original best-selling cookbook, Simply Delicious.
A delectable compilation of some 500 recipes, Simply More Delicious is a collection of new and treasured recipes, brought to you by Rhode Island's best-known restaurants, markets and caterers, local amateur chefs and members of The Women's Association.
Simply More Delicious is more than a collection of treasured and delicious recipes. It also tells the history of the Miriam Hospital Women's Association and how, over 80 years ago, a determined group of Rhode Island women raised enough money in four weeks to start a hospital. That support continues today as an organization 800 women (and some men) strong continues to support The Miriam Hospital through its volunteer services and continued fundraising efforts.
Taste the best we have to offer in a state where fabulous cuisine is an art form and a way of life. Call 401-793-2520 to order yours today.
