Integrative medicine is an approach to healthcare based on an understanding that healing is more than the elimination of physical symptoms of illness. Integrative medicine uses a range of standard and non-standard practices (sometimes called complementary therapies) to support the healing of the individual on all levels – mental, emotional, spiritual and physical – according to personal choice.
Integrative medicine also addresses the hospital itself as a healing environment, the well-being of staff, and the effects of the physical environment on everyone present. At Suburban Hospital, Integrative Medicine Services is a philanthropically supported program working closely with all areas of the hospital and bringing innovative options to inpatients, outpatients, community members, and staff.
