Healing Hospital: A Daring Paradigm Steven Z. Beard Grand Canyon University: HLT-310V(HLT-310V-O102) Spirituality in Health Care July 7, 2013 Healing hospitals and their relationship to spirituality Healing hospitals require more than just patient care, they require love and compassion with not only a patient but there family as well.

Well, the sitting on 4 acres the hospital encompasses Ronald Regan UCLA Medical center, Stewart and Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA and Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA. Some key features I found extremely helpful is their organization. Every floor of Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center is devoted to a specific specialty and equipped with all of the essential support equipment and supplies.
