It's designed to bring encouragement and renewal to healthcare professionals. Doctors Medical Center Chaplain Jeremy Brown pours warm, refreshing water over the hands while offering a blessing.

This multi-faith tradition was held at numerous times throughout the week and all employees were welcome to participate.
