The "Healer's Touch" Sculpture Unveiled

University Hospital unveiled the “Healer’s Touch” sculpture in recognition of our nurses on May 10, 2018.  The statue is housed in the lobby of our facility for patients, nurses and others to observe. A special event was held to show appreciation for our nurses and their dedication to University Hospital.

The “Healer’s Touch” sculpture is created in Zimbabwe by members of the Shona Tribe. They use Serpentine Stone as their sculpting material. Each statue is hand-carved, making them a one-of-a-kind piece of art. They travel long distances, of various routes, in order to reach their forever homes. We were ecstatic to present the nurses of University Hospital with their very own “Healer’s Touch” sculpture. It is an incredible representation and reminder of the healing qualities nurses embody.

We show our nurses appreciation with great excitement. They deserve to be honored with the utmost respect and sincerity. Our nurses at University Hospital become familiar faces to our patients, creating trustful relationships. The "Healer's Touch" sculpture constitutes the compassion and unfailing work ethic being exerted by our nurses here at University Hospital.

Just as the Shona Tribe sees their healers as treasures, we see our nurses as treasures.
