BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — This morning, in honor of National Doctor's Day, Adventist Health hospital leaders gathered to pray for doctors from the roof of the medical center. They also prayed for the entire staff, patients, the community, the nation and the world during this time.

“We find ourselves in rapidly changing times, but as a faith-based organization, there is one thing that remains constant for Adventist Health: prayer,” said Sharlet Briggs, president of Adventist Health Bakersfield. “Praying is a critical part of what we do and who we are, and with today as National Doctors’ Day, we decided to gather on our rooftop and lift up in prayer our physicians as well as our patients, staff, community, nation and the world. It’s our way of bringing that true constant into our work – the power of prayer.”
