In addition to the medical work being providedby Seventh-day Adventist healthcare institutions, church-sponsored relief agencies and medical missionaries respond to emergency situations and international crises.

In Darfur and other places torn apart by war–as well as those ravaged by flood, famine or disease–workers from Adventist agencies seek to relieve pain and suffering, delivering food, clothing and medicine. Doctors, nurses, teachers, college students and other volunteers provide healthcare, training and physical labor to build roads, repair shelters and develop irrigation systems. The services available are as varied as the challenges that arise.

Each of us, every employee of Florida Hospital and Adventist Health System, is part of a healthcare tradition that began more than one hundred and fifty years ago. And our healing touch reaches around the world.
