God's Hotel: A Doctor, a Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine


Show Synopsis

A medical "page-turner" that traces one doctor's "remarkable journey to the essence of medicine" ("The San Francisco Chronicle"). Laguna Honda Hospital, low-tech but human-paced, gave Sweet the opportunity to practice a kind of attentive medicine that has almost vanished. Gradually, the place transformed the way she understood her work.

Great book in many ways

This book was so good that I bought an extra copy to give to a friend. Dr. Sweet tells the compelling story of medicine and health care, and the difference. She also walks the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, and describes how that experience had a profound influence on her. Her study of Hildegard of Bingen is also profound and insightful. The book is rich in so many ways, the writing is great, and the story of Laguna Honda is one I will long remember.
