The philosophy and principles that guided the development of Battle Creek’s Health Reform Institute in 1866 now can be found in more than 500 hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities around the world.

Adventist institutions have earned world-class reputations for providing excellent care. Loma Linda University and Medical Center in Southern California is known for developing innovative procedures and for training medical personnel who serve around the world. Florida Hospital has become one of the largest healthcare providers in the United States.

But large or small, local or international, all Adventist organizations are united in purpose and mission. In Bandung Adventist Hospital in Indonesia, Scheer Memorial Hospital in Nepal and Karachi Adventist Hospital in Pakistan, devoted employees are working to restore the health of heart, mind, body and spirit. In an outpost along the Amazon River, healthcare workers are extending the healing ministry of Christ.
