  • This Blade archive file photo, dated May 23, 1950, shows Dr. Phillip Cohn, left, and assistants, Dr. Jose Siero and Dr. Jack Wu, looking at a chest X-ray at the William Roche Memorial Hospital in Toledo.  The facility was referred to as a tuberculosis hospital and was having difficulty finding trained American chest doctors on its available budget. Few doctors specialized in chest diseases because of the comparatively low pay, making it necessary to hire foreign doctors. But Dr. Siero, from Nicaragua, and Dr. Wu, from China, were ruled ineligible to be staff physicians at the Roche Hospital.  The Ohio Civil Service commission determined that the two men could not be doctors at the facility because state law required staff members of a county institution to be both U.S. citizens and graduates of a Class A medical school eligible to be licensed in Ohio.  To get around the ruling, the hospital board designated the two men as “medical secretaries” reporting to Dr. Cohn, who was the hospital superintendent. The medical secretary position was a classification exempt from civil service oversight.  The hospital planned to ask other tuberculosis hospitals to join them in Columbus to address state lawmakers and ask to have the rules changed.  William Roche Memorial Hospital was funded by a 0.3-mill real estate tax levy. On average, it had 183 patients.
