Dr. Julius H. Hess

Dr. Julius H. Hess established the special care nursery at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago around 1914. He also authored the first American textbook about care of premature infants, which was published in 1922, and invented an electrically-heated water-jacketed infant bed that was used in many nurseries.
