BMH launches Healing Heroes Adoption Program, Ceremony

September 26, 2018

BLACKFOOT – Hanging on the walls of Bingham Memorial Hospital (BMH), there are portraits of healing heroes throughout history, along with their stories. Since the outset of this initiative, many people have admired the portraits and started asking if they could adopt a healing hero portrait to dedicate to the loving memory of someone close to them who has passed. As such, BMH is pleased to announce that they have launched the “Hall of Healing Heroes Adoption Program.”

When someone adopts a healing hero, the hospital will place a placard next to the portrait with a personalized inscription and have a special dedication for the family. (This placard will remain in the hospital for the lifetime of the portrait.)

You are invited to attend our first, very special placard ceremony at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 28. The first portrait adopted was of Mother Theresa (of Calcutta), which hangs on the main level of the hospital in the radiology hallway. Dr. John W. Harris sentimentally adopted it in honor of his wife, Shirley Harris.

For more information on the program, or to see each of the portraits, please visit: https://www.binghammemorial.org/healing-heroes.
