Our Holistic Approach to Patient Care
Holistic Care treats the whole person–mind, body and spirit–not just symptoms and disease. Holism refers to the idea of interacting wholes. We see individual health as one such system and our community as another. The mind, body and spirit are entities that interact with each other and create an overall sense of well being. We then interact with others in our community and positively impact the well being of each other. At Providence Place, we’re responsible for and aware of both these dynamics and take care to provide not only positive individual support, but encourage positive community growth and interaction.
This philosophy creates an atmosphere of care and staff who are trained to consider the whole person. It also encourages our staff to look beyond conditions and ailments and see patients as people first.
Core Principles of Our Holistic Approach
- Health is a measure of wellness of the entire person–mind, body and spirit
- The whole person must be treated, not just the disease
- Mind, body and spirit are inseparable and must be treated together
- Real health isn’t measured by the absence of disease, but the wellness of the person on every level
