Summary
  • "Choosing service in the last remaining almshouse in America, and tracing our understanding of medicine back to its medieval roots, a physician uncovers lost lessons in the care of body and soul"--
  • San Francisco's Laguna Honda Hospital is the last almshouse in the country, a descendant of the Hôtel-Dieu (God's Hotel) that cared for the sick in the Middle Ages. Ballet dancers and rock musicians, professors and thieves--anyone who had fallen, or, often, leapt, onto hard times and needed extended medical care--ended up here. So did Victoria Sweet, who came for two months and stayed for twenty years
