The Gesundheit Hospital Project- The Incomparable Dr Patch Adams

As a sequel to my last post on Hospitals, I am planning an article on my dear friend, the heroic Dr. Patch Adams, who has been spreading a healing through humanism, laughter and arts message around the world for over 30 years. See http://www.patchadams.org/. Also Patch (#=his signature is a "patch") has been planning to build a model hospital in West Virginia and says "we enter our 33rd year without having broken ground" but also stating that "simply being in an idealist quest is its own reward". The movie Patch Adams starring Robin Williams www.patchadams.com circa 1998 garnered worldwide attention to the real Patch but did not stimulate the funding to build Patch's beloved humanistic hospital. I believe Patch's time has arrived so as he says "cough it up ($) now"!

(Right now I am fully engaged in a battle to keep probably the best 19th century American Painting -Thomas Eakins' "The Gross Clinic" in Philadelphia. The Philistine healthcare leaders at Thomas Jefferson University and Hospital are attempting to sell it to of all people- Wal-Mart heirs in Bentonville Arkansas for 68 million dollars)

More on Patch Adams and his many projects soon.

If there's anything that tells us that Big Money and Big Pharma, have some of the fiercest allies among the MSM it's the sad tale of Dr. Patch Adams!

What an odd thing to have NO Positive financial responce after the Robin Williams movie (Which was one of William's greatest works!)m

How incredible it is that not ONE of the Pharmacy giants has reached out to Dr. Patch in his time of need! All he wants to do is build a Hospital! How strange it is that NOT ONE pharmacy company, or retail distributor has taken up this worthy cause? Could it be that they see it as a threat? Sure it can!

Big Pharma's Mantra:

"Treat forever! A Cure? NEVER!!!!!"

Stoney- Of course Big Pharma and Big Insurance and Big Hospital Industry see Patch as a threat. These "health" sector leaders, despite their occasional rhetoric, stand only for one goal- $profits$

It is crashing down though. The public will not tolerate more thievery.

Patch will live to see his hospital.

Be Well and Thanks
