 God's Hotel

A Doctor, a Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine
by Victoria Sweet

"More than twenty years ago, Dr. Victoria Sweet arrived at San Francisco's Laguna Honda Hospital, intending to stay for a brief time. ... At Laguna Honda, lower-tech but human-paced, Sweet had the opportunity to practice a kind of "slow medicine" that has almost vanished, and falling under the hospital's spell, she decided to stay. Gradually, her remarkable patients transformed the way she understood medicine." -- from the publisher
