Strong Memorial Hospital was founded in 1926. Funding came from the founder of Kodak George Eastman and the heirs of past Kodak president Henry Strong. The hospital is owned by the University of Rochester and is a part of the university’s medical center. Strong Memorial Hospital currently serves as a teaching hospital.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at Strong Memorial Hospital are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. Before the 1970s, asbestos was a major component of the building materials that went into the construction of the hospital. Asbestos was present in the forms of fireproof insulation, insulating cement, pipe covering, and joint compound.
Fireproof insulation is composed of asbestos, cement, and linen. The insulating material was packaged in bags, mixed with water, and sprayed onto Strong Memorial Hospital’s structural steel. Fire proofers who coated the structure with this insulation had plentiful exposure to asbestos.
Asbestos pipe covering, joint compound, and insulating cement were utilized in the construction of Strong Memorial Hospital. When laborers performed maintenance and repairs on the building, asbestos dust was emitted into the air and inhaled.
