The Journey
Holistic, patient-centered care

The vision of Redwood Memorial Hospital is to be recognized as a leader in holistic, patient-centered care -- promoting the optimal well-being of the community; and providing a welcoming and healing environment that physically, emotionally and spiritually uplifts patients, families, physicians, staff and our volunteers.

Read the Journey Service Standards

The underlying principles of the journey
  • Body, mind and spirit are an integral whole that cannot be separated into isolated parts
  • Every intervention or interaction is holistic in its impact: it affects the whole person
  • Relationships -- among caregivers and between caregivers and patients/families/loved ones -- have a profound effect on healing
  • Each person has an innate capacity for self-repair and healing
  • Patients and loved ones play a critical role on the health care team
  • Healing is always possible, even when curing is not
  • Staff and physicians are effective in providing and supporting holistic care to the extent that they understand, experience and practice it themselves
