A Doctor, A Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine
by Victoria Sweet
Author Appearance at Bastyr University, Monday, May 6th at 12 noon.
San Francisco's Laguna Honda Hospital is the last almshouse in the country, a descendant of the Hotel-Dieu (God's Hotel) that cared for the sick in the Middle Ages. Ballet dancers and rock musicians, professors and thieves - "anyone who had fallen, or, often, leapt, onto hard times" and needed extended medical care-ended up here. So did Victoria Sweet, who came for two months and stayed for twenty years.
