The school is named after Daniel Hale Williams, born in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania on January 18, 1856.  He was an American general surgeon who, in 1893, performed a successful pericardium surgery to repair a wound. He also founded Provident Hospital, the first non-segregated hospital in the United States with an interracial staff.
