Healing body, mind and spirit
When patients come to Woodwinds Health Campus, they expect to be treated for injuries or ailments pertaining to their bodies. But we place a high priority on integrative medicine - healing body, mind and spirit - at Woodwinds, and take the extra effort to meet all needs, not just medicine. We want to treat every aspect of every patient who enters this hospital.
