chi medical library
McLaren Greater Lansing has a reputation of being first in many medical achievements. One of those achievements was none other then the family's name after which our library is dedicated. The CHI Memorial Medical Library now echoes both the hospital and the Chi family's example of excellence in offering many new resources and concepts at consumer's fingertips.

John W. Chi was the son of Drs. Seong and Kiwhan Oh Chi. Dr. Seong Chi performed the first open heart surgery at McLaren Greater Lansing in the mid-1960's. John spent much of this life in the shadow of McLaren Greater Lansing, distinguishing himself as a scholar and athlete. The dedication plaque at the library entrance reads: "His eloquence was in his living and giving of himself to others. John Chi was 20 when he died in an automobile accident in 1976. The Library was dedicated as the John W. Chi Memorial Medical Library on Sept. 10, 1976

My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey. Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D., Viking Penguin Group, NY, NY, 2008.

On Dec. 10, 1996, Jill Bolte Taylor, a Harvard-trained brain scientist, had a massive stroke when a blood vessel exploded in the left side of her brain. As a neuroanatomist, she describes her mind as is responded to the stroke. It's taken eight years and hundreds of hours of rehabilitation for Dr. Taylor to regain most of the deficits from her stroke. The book offers a unique perspective on the brain's capacity for recovery, and the mechanics of the mind.

This book has been donated to the Consumer Health Section of McLaren Greater Lansing's Chi Medical Library.
