A Healing Hospital
A Healing Hospital
A healing hospital has three major components. For instance the Mercy Gilbert Medical center which has been ranked the second healing hospital nationally by the Baptist Healing Trust for two consecutive years. It is known to be the only designated hospital in Arizona because of its glass of facility, mortar and bricks, and generally the culture of the organization is what makes it different from the other hospitals. However, it has majorly three components.
A healing hospital has a healing physical environment. It considers how they would care for patients as well as employees and as care givers they would also mingle with families. The way healing environments are constructed helps families and patients to manage stresses of illness; they are also made free from overhead paging, noise from loud machines moving and from voices of nurses calling to each other at their station. (Henderson, 2001).
A culture of Radical Loving Care. This is an important component in a healing hospital because it fully embraces the culture of Radical Loving care; a philosophy supported by the leader Erie Chapman the leader of health-care. If the hospital lacks the culture of compassionate care, it becomes hard to promote artwork, beautiful building, technology and gardens. This is because it needs individuals who are committed to that philosophy.
The integration of technology and word design. Healing hospitals work with the help of designers to evaluate ways in which they can encourage the staff to work more efficiently on their jobs. It also provides a perfect security and privacy for patients hence using. A good Healing Hospital offers advanced technology making it a caring environment delivered by a compassionate staff. The strong culture of compassionate care of a Healing Hospital is mostly based on the concept of Radical Loving Care. The philosophy takes all the workers of the health-care and back to their roots and motivates them more. In addition, the hospitals do not just employ their workers. The employees are always selected not according to their levels of skills but also their gift of loving care deliverance. All new employees undergo an orientation showing the philosophy of Radical Loving Care and that an encounter of patients and their families is sacred.
Moreover, there are also biblical aspects that support the concept of a healing hospital. The one most known is that God is the healer. A Biblical comprehension must acknowledge that the healer is God. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget his benefits, who forgives all my sons and heal my diseases.”(Psalms 103:1-3).Despite the health workers attempt to facilitate healing in different ways, God remains the sole healer. God, the creator of all things, is known to give life. The death of Christ on the cross brought freedom from sin and sickness (1Peter 2:24).When we walk in obedience with faith in God, allowing the holy spirit to work in us as we work, we become His vessels hence bringing the healing power to the people we are together every day( M’Quin, 2005).There are a number of themes in the Bible which are relevant to health issues. The priests were the ones to diagnose diseases by assignation and were also the ones to confirm healing. Many references were there according to the Law of Moses of mostly infectious diseases, diagnosis and management. God told Moses that if he could pay attention and listen to his commands and do what is right in his eyes, He could not bring to Him any diseases as He had done to the Egyptians for He is the Lord God who heals (Exodus 15:26).That obeying God would bring blessing while disobedience would bring diseases and curses. (Deuteronomy 28:20-22).
In conclusion, healing hospitals go hand in hand with spiritual healing. They have become of importance worldwide since they have saved lives of many people and therefore they should be greatly encouraged and supported.
