One of our Windsor hospitals was founded as ‘Hotel-Dieu’. Translated from French it is literally ‘House Of God’.
The care of the sick has been a long-standing tradition of the Christian faith. The first hospitals were founded and run by the church.
While that is no longer the case, the churches have a therapeutic role in the lives of the sick.
Consider this early church instruction:
Paul urges us to help each other, especially the weak and discouraged. We need to become very patient with everyone.
If the church is to be a hospital, we need to be a place that sick people are welcomed and expected. It is a place for healing and restoration, but also the place of comfort and understanding when you are dying.
In the House of God, there is always room. We are committed to getting you on your feet and helping you in your suffering.
You can find our staff policy written on the walls of the hospital. This is our protocol in the House of God.
