Along with other related modalities, Healing Touch Program is now a vital part of Mission Hospital‘s Integrative Health Care Program. Healing Touch was chosen because it is the only energy program that is standardized to satisfy the Joint Commission (Regulatory Board for Hospitals). The director and staff of Integrative Health Care are Board Certified Holistic Nurses. The Medical Director for the program is Dr. Danna Park. Under Director Lourdes Lorenz, Mission’s Integrative Health Care Program is designed to:
1. Educate and support nurses and staff through retreats, presentations, and classes.
2. Educate the public through lectures and introductory classes.
3. Implement therapies within the hospital system through Pilot Programs and “on-call” services.
