On the sign:
בריאות הציבור, תרפ"א
"טיפת חלב", ספינת הדגל של בריאות הציבור בארץ החלה את פעילותה בעיר העתיקה. ביקורה של הנרייטה סולד בארץ כעשור לפני כן, היווה זרז להעתקת הדגם של מרכז הבריאות ממנהטן לירושלים. בתחנות טיפת חלב הודרכו האימהות ותינוקותיהן, נשקלו וחוסנו. המעקב הרפואי אחר הילד היה מרחם אמו ועד לבגרותו וכדהגדרת אחיות הדסה, "בכדי ליצור דור בריא בגופו ובנפשו".

Public Health, 1921
Tipat Halav (mother and baby clinics), the country’s public health flagship, began in the Old City. Henrietta Szold’s visit to the country a decade earlier had provided the catalyst for replicating the Manhattan health center model in Jerusalem. At the clinics, mothers received instruction and babies were weighed and vaccinated. Children were medically monitored from womb to adolescence, as Hadassah nurses put it, "in order to produce a generation healthy in mind and body."
