Abstract

This book is a re-telling of the story of the mission of the Sydney Adventist Hospital - even today still known fondly to many as "the San" - based on the many stories and vignettes shared by people, and about people, who lived the San's mission, contributing to a hospital that has had an impact on many lives.This is not a chronological and systematic historical narrative, but it uses the motivation and inspiration of individuals and events to illustrate how the mission of the hospital has been fulfilled through its healing and restorative ministry since 1903. It also illustrates how mission inspired individuals, decisions, strategies and the pioneering work that remains the hallmark of the San.
