Dr. Daniel H. Williams

An ambassador for African-American patients and physicians, Dr. Daniel H. Williams transformed the field of medicine over the span of his exalted career. He founded Provident Hospital in 1891 and performed the first open heart surgery in 1893. Williams annihilated racial barriers, expanding medical education and employment opportunities for Blacks.
