Stories of Care

Seventh-day Adventist health care seeks to extend the healing touch of Christ in a way that restores physical, mental and spiritual wholeness to lives in the communities within our reach. The gospel accounts of Christ’s ministry are filled with reports of those who left the divine encounter with joy in their hearts, renewed vigor in their steps and stories of gratitude and thanksgiving for heavenly love poured through a human vessel.

Christ is the source of healing waters. His love is a spring that will never run dry. These stories are evidence that each day brings new opportunities for caregivers to serve as conduits of grace and restoration.

Whole-person Care

Seventh-day Adventist hospitals across North America bring a whole person care approach to hope and healing to those suffering physically, mentally and spiritually. Because of the inextricable connection between the body, mind and spirit, the treatment of sickness, mental health and spiritual needs is essential to Christ-like care.
