Anna Magee's vision of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital has been realized in three phases. The first spanned the writing of her will until groundbreaking of the new hospital. This was followed by the early years as an entirely independent institution. The third phase began with its association with Thomas Jefferson University, and continues to this day with integration into a complete system of patient care, education, and research. Magee owes its existence to the philanthropy of Anna Magee and it continues to fortify her legacy and fulfill her vision of an institution where patients whose acute illness has passed can receive the rehabilitation necessary for return to the community, and thereafter receive the support needed to maintain their highest level of function.
