Spirituality

We have the privilege of saving lives and seeing miracles every day. As healthcare professionals, we are patient advocates and that doesn't stop with text books and dialogue. We believe in the power of prayer. Before each procedure we bow our heads and, with the patient's permission, share in a word of prayer. We ask for God's guidance over the patient and our hands and eyes. Prayer is part of our standard of care.
