Chaplains host a Blessing of the Hands ceremony every year during National Hospital
The Blessing of the Hands is a cherished health care tradition practiced
around the world. The practice often links the art and science backgrounds
of health care to the spiritual aspect of healing. The blessing can be
a meaningful experience for physicians, nurses and all CCH staff. The
nondenominational ceremony is open to anyone, religious or not, no matter

the ceremony at
Hospice and Home Health on May 10, shown here with nurses Kat Tuning (left) and Amanda Walter, (right).
